Passengers hurt in one-vehicle crash; one injured in city accident

Three passengers were hurt in a roll-over accident that happened late Saturday night, July 28, on a county road.
Deputy Joe Guarneri received the call at 10:47 p.m. to investigate the crash on County Line Road about 1,500 feet east of its intersection with South Boatman Road.
Arriving, he found the driver, Kieran L. Omer, 32, Clarksville. Omer said he had been driving west in his 2017 Kia Rio with three passengers, Jason B. Goble, 34, Tasha M. Rodriquez, 35, and Blaze M. Gibson, 12. All are from Jeffersonville.
Omer told the officer he topped a hill too fast and lost control of the Kia. It ran off the road and flipped. A witness corroborated his statement, according to Deputy Guarneri’s report.
Goble experienced upper shoulder pain following the mishap. Rodriquez had chest pain, and the child complained of head pain. Scott County EMS technicians assisted the injured at the scene.
Property damage was estimated at up to $25,000.
Deputy Guarneri was assisted at the scene by Deputy Brice Nichols of the Clark County Sheriff’s Department.
In Scottsburg action, an injury was reported to Scottsburg police following a three-vehicle accident on State Road 56 West (West McClain Avenue) just before 12 noon on Wednesday, August 1. Sgt. Rodney Watts, Detective Steve Herald and Patrolman Trevis Burr worked the accident scene, which was about 150 feet east of Beatrice Avenue.
Drivers included Danny E. Pierpont, 63, and Ricky J. Burns, 64, both of Scottsburg, and Debbra E. Schultz, 66, Gowen, MI. All were westbound on S.R. 56 when Schultz stopped her 2010 Toyota Camry to turn left. Pierpont did not notice the pickup Burns was driving had stopped behind Schultz. He struck it in the rear with his 2000 Chevy Silverado pickup.
That impact drove Burns’ 2014 Ford F250 pickup into the rear of Schultz. Schultz’s passenger, Donald R. Schultz, 81, also of Gowen, suffered a possible neck injury.
