(St. Joseph County, IN) - Highway speeds plus wet road conditions equaled a two-car collision east of New Carlisle Wednesday afternoon.
The accident happened soon after 5:30 p.m. on US 20 just west of Quince Road outside the entrance to West Pointe Estates subdivision.
A black Chevy pickup truck collided with the driver’s side of a white SUV as the vehicles were rounding a curve. Heavy rain was falling at the time. Both cars were totaled.
A child in a car seat was removed from the SUV and checked out in a waiting ambulance. No other injuries were reported.
A very similar accident occurred in the same spot last October. Neighbors said it’s actually the fourth such accident in the twenty years they have lived there. A roadside berm kept the SUV from entering their backyard.
