SILVER LAKE — Two people were transported to the hospital after a head-on collision on South SR 15, south of West CR 950S, Silver Lake.
At approximately 4:02 p.m. Wednesday, Oct. 10, officers with the Kosciusko County Sheriff’s Department responded to a report of a vehicle accident.
The crash involved a 2006 maroon Buick Lacrosse, operated by Ronald Prater, 63, Warsaw; and a 2011 red Ford Ranger, operated by Jarell D. May, 53, North Webster.
Prater was traveling north on SR 15 and believed something broke in the front end of his vehicle, causing his vehicle to enter the south bound lane and strike May’s vehicle head-on. May’s vehicle continued into the ditch.
May complained of neck pain. A passenger in Prater’s vehicle, Cassandra S. Schnitz, 31, Akron, complained of back pain. May and Schnitz were transported to the hospital by medics.
