A woman who was backing a car on North Third Street in Scottsburg ended up hitting a house and a parked vehicle on Wednesday night, January 16.

Scottsburg firemen who were at a medical aid run at a home on North Third St. told Patrolman Trevis Burr and Sgt. Steve Herald that they saw the Chevy Cobalt being driven by Angelia E. Burke, 30, Scottsburg, on the city street.
They said the woman suddenly put the vehicle into reverse and began quickly backing down the street. She continued to do so until the car went off the street and into the yard at 145 North Third St.
The Cobalt then struck a parked vehicle and then the house at that address. Both are owned by Charles S. Baker.
Burke told officers that she was being chased by a white Chevy Blazer and that she was backing to avoid the vehicle. No witness saw the Blazer, the officer’s report indicated.
Burke was attended on the scene by Scott County EMS technicians. They also transported her to Scott Memorial Hospital for treatment of neck pain.
Property damage was estimated at up to $10,000.
