    Three people were listed as injured in two separate traffic accidents that happened in Scottsburg on Thursday, April 2.
    According to information obtained from the Scottsburg Police Department, the two accidents occurred a little over an hour apart on Thursday afternoon. The first was reported at 3:28 p.m. on U.S. Highway 31 at its intersection with Wardell Street. Drivers were Brigid Young, 44, Louisville, Ky., and Jalia Campbell, 46, Scottsburg.
    Lt. Richey Barton investigated the mishap. Driver statements related that Young's 1994 Dodge Intrepid struck the 2005 Ford Taurus driven by Campbell in the rear as each was approaching the intersection. The impact forced Campbell's car into the back of a trailer being hauled by a pickup truck.
    The women told Lt. Barton that the driver of the pickup got out of the truck and looked at the back of both the trailer and his pickup and then got back in the truck and left without talking to either of them.
    Campbell was listed as injured. She suffered neck pain and was assisted at the scene by Scott County EMS.
    Property damage was estimated at up to $1,000 by the officer.
    At 4:38 p.m., Lt. Barton and Lt./Detective Mike Nichols were called to a two-car accident at the entrance to Jay C Food Store on U.S. Highway 31 North. Deputy Rodney Rudder of the Sheriff's Department assisted at the scene.
    Involved in the accident were drivers Peggy J. Bowling, 59, Scottsburg, and Tamra D. Campbell, 25, Austin. Bowling told the officers that she was pulling out of the parking lot in her 1995 Saturn to go north on U.S. 31 and did not see Campbell's 2001 Pontiac Grand Prix coming south on the highway.
    Bowling experienced chest pain following the collision, while Campbell suffered head pain.         They were helped at the scene by Scott County EMS and First Responders from the Scottsburg Volunteer Fire Department. Additional medical assistance was rendered at the Scott Memorial Hospital emergency room.
    Property damage was listed at up to $5,000.
