NEW PARIS — Warsaw resident Paul Akers, 62, sustained no injuries in a two-vehicle accident that sent the other driver to the hospital.
Officers with the Elkhart County Sheriff’s Department responded at about 9 a.m. Friday, May 27, to calls about an accident at SR 15 and CR 146 just south of New Paris.
According to police reports, a 2011 Ford F350, driven by Paul E. Kline, 71, Roann, was northbound on SR 15 behind a 2006 Freightliner, driven by Akers. Kline attempted to pass Akers’ truck on the right, however the truck bumped Kline’s vehicle, causing it to spin.
Both drivers were wearing seat belts at the time of the crash.
Kline was transported to IU Health Goshen with complaints of back pain. Officers cited him for improper passing.
