Warsaw Police and Warsaw-Wayne Fire Territory and Multi-Township EMS responded where they found a 1994 Camaro and a 2004 Nissan SUV had collided.
According to the completed police report, Louis J. Jones, 50, of Warsaw, was eastbound on U.S. 30 and said he had the green light to turn left. He said as he turned, he struck the driver’s side of the SUV, driven by Whitney N. Shoemaker, 23, also of Warsaw. Shoemaker was traveling on Old Road 30 and said her light was green. A witness, Adam Gardner, told police he was crossing through the intersection at the time the crash happened and that Shoemaker and other traffic on Old Road 30 had the green light for “quite some time” before Jones entered the intersection.
Shoemaker complained of pain and was treated by Multi-Township EMS.

Eastbound traffic was backed up for approximately 30 minutes while the accident scene was cleared.
Damages were estimated at up to $10,000.
