Vehicular accidents occurring in Scott County on July 29 and 30 injured a total of three people, according to Sheriff’s Department reports.
The first accident occurred at the intersection of State Road 56 and State Road 203/Goshen Road east of Scottsburg at 3:46 p.m. on Tuesday, July 29.
Driver Andrew M. Stamper, 18, Charlestown, told Deputy Joe Guarneri that he had stopped on S.R. 203 headed east at S.R. 56. He said he did not see any on-coming traffic and so proceeded across the highway to enter Goshen Rd.
Unfortunately, he did not see an eastbound 2006 Chevy driven by Karl F. Dudding, 55, Aurora. The car struck the 2007 Ford Ranger on the driver’s side.
Neither driver was listed as injured, but their passengers were hurt. Stamper’s passenger was identified as Danielle F. Woodruff, 22, Charlestown. She suffered chest pain. Dudding’s passenger, Regina Hill, 42, Lawrenceburg, had a possible elbow/lower arm injury.
Scott County EMS and First Responders with the Scottsburg Volunteer Fire Department assisted the injured.
Property damage from the accident was estimated at up to $25,000. Deputy Shawn Mayer assisted at the scene.
On Wednesday, July 30, an injury accident happened on Terry Road 1,000 feet south of Harrod Road. The mishap occurred just before 5:30 p.m.
Eric W. Stump, 32, Austin, was in a 2006 Chevy 1500 pickup behind a 2012 Honda Fit driven by Patricia A. Thompson, 48, Austin.
He said the car began to slow in front of him. He said he didn’t see a turn signal, so he proceeded to go around the vehicle, but it turned left, causing the pickup to hit the car.
Stump was uninjured, but Thompson suffered head pain. She was treated by Scott County EMS technicians at the scene and then taken by ambulance to Scott Memorial Hospital.
Property damage from this accident was also estimated at up to $25,000 by Deputy Guarneri.
