Two women were hurt in accidents occurring on April 27 and 28 , the first in Scottsburg and the second on State Road 56 east of the city.
Sheena J. Sutton, 34, Austin, was a passenger in a 2002 Chevy Cavalier being driven by Jimmy L. White, 33, Austin, on Wednesday, April 27.
The couple were headed east on State Road 56 West near the road's intersection with Honeyrun Parkway. White purportedly told Sgt. Rodney Watts after the mishap that he had attempted a U-turn just before 2:30 p.m., but he said he didn't see a 2009 Hyundai Elantra coming east in the left lane. He made the U-turn, and the collision occurred.
Sutton suffered neck pain at the scene and was transported by Scott County EMS to Scott Memorial Hospital for treatment.
White was cited for improper turning.
Property damage was estimated at up to $5,000.
Just before 9:30 a.m. on Thursday, April 28, a Scottsburg woman said she attempted a lefthand turn off S.R. 56 East onto State Road 3 in her 2000 Pontiac Forebird and the car failed to respond. The woman said the failure wasn't the first she'd experienced in the car.
Shirley L. Fulkerson, 40, wound up parallel with S.R. 56 opposite S.R. 3 in a ditch. She experienced chest pain after the mishap. Scott County EMS technicians assisted her at the scene.
Deputy Rodney Rudder was assisted at the scene by Detective Rick Barrett.
