Four Syracuse residents were hurt in a crash near U.S. 6 just before 8 a.m. this morning.
According to the Elkhart County Sheriff’s Department, Kassidy Schafstall, 18, was airlifted after the crash. Police say she pulled from a private drive on SR 13 just south of U.S. 6 and into the path of a northbound 2006 Dodge Ram 3500 driven by Ronald Stuckman, 42, Syracuse.
Schafstall’s vehicle was hit on the driver side and the impact forced her 1999 Ford Explorer off of the road. Schafstall sustained a laceration to her forehead.
Stuckman suffered abrasions to his hands and complained of neck and knee pain. Two passengers in his truck were also hurt. Jeanelle Stuckman, 38, complained of neck pain and suffered bleeding to her lower lip. Sawyer Stuckman, 11, complained of chest pain. All three people in the truck were taken to Goshen General Hospital for treatment.
Police say everyone was wearing seat belts at the time of the crash.
Schafstall was cited for failing to yield the right of way.
