Accident snarls intersection; no one hurt

December 7, 2006

No one was injured in a two-vehicle accident at the intersection of Sixth Street and U.S. Highway 56 today at about 12:30 p.m.

Baldwin City Police are still working the accident and no official details are available. The Signal will update breaking news when more information is provided.

A witness to the accident, Baker University student Jason Mock, said it appeared to him that the eastbound car on U.S. 56 went through a red light and was hit in the intersection by a dump truck that was northbound on Sixth Street.

Mock said the driver of the car was taken to the ambulance on the scene, but he got out of the ambulance quickly and was walking around the accident site.

The car came to rest in the middle of the intersection and the truck traveled on north until stopping. Both vehicles sustained heavy damage. Traffic had to detour around the car.
