A crash with a dump truck sent a car bouncing off into the side of a house on South Union Street Monday afternoon.
Warsaw police responded shortly before 2 p.m. to a two-vehicle accident on West Winona Avenue at the four-way stop at South Union Street, where they found a red Ford sedan that had come to rest against the side of a house at 321 S. Union St. The residence is owned by Chad Zartman of North CR 150W, Warsaw.
The driver of the sedan, Thelma I. Walton, 73, of North CR 650E, Pierceton, complained of neck pain as a result of the accident. The driver of the dump truck owned by Carey Excavating, Harold R. Smith, 69, of South Ind. 5, Pierceton, reported no injuries, according to a WPD crash report.
Walton told officers she did not see any oncoming traffic when she pulled onto Winona Avenue from Union Street. She was stopped on the north side of Winona Avenue before proceeding south into the intersection, where she struck the side of the eastbound dump truck.
Smith told police that Walton’s vehicle bounced off his fuel tank and driver’s side rear tires before spinning around and crashing into the side of the house.
Walton’s vehicle sustained front-end and passenger-side damage and was towed from the scene. Damage is estimated at between $2,500 and $5,000.
