Four vehicles were involved in a crash on SR 15 at CR 250 North in Warsaw just before 9:30 p.m. Friday.
According to scanner traffic, two people sustained head trauma. One of the drivers also reportedly attempted to leave the scene.
A Warsaw Police report, made available Monday morning, noted Adam J. Snyder, 35, of Warsaw, was approaching southbound on SR 15 the intersection of Jaylnn Street and noticed traffic was backed up. As the traffic signal turned green, he began passing vehicles in the passing lane. That’s when Elio R.

A third vehicle, driven by Kari E. Brown, 32, of Leesburg, then collided with the rear of Snyder’s vehicle.
