LEESBURG — A three-vehicle collision at 7819 N. SR 15, just north of Leesburg, backed northbound traffic up for over a mile, this morning, Wednesday, Oct. 14. The accident occurred at approximately 7:54 a.m. Southbound traffic was utilizing CR 800N to Old 15 and into Leesburg to detour around the crash. The road was re-opened after wreckers arrived at the scene.
According to one of the drivers, he was northbound and slowed his Chevrolet Traverse down for a vehicle turning into the residence at that location. A Chrysler 300S, which was also being driven northbound, struck the back of a northbound Nissan Sentra. The impact then pushed the Sentra into the back of the Traverse.
There were a total of five people in the vehicles. All five signed off any medical treatment.
Leesburg Fire Department, Lutheran EMS and Kosciusko County Sheriff’s Office responded to the scene.
