Two drivers cited for driving too fast for road conditions after five-vehicle crash

ELKHART COUNTY, Ind.—Two drivers were cited for driving too fast for road conditions on Monday night after a five-vehicle crash injured three people, according to the Elkhart County Sheriff’s Office.

A 51-year-old Wakarusa woman lost control of her GMC Sierra in the southbound lane of S.R. 19 N near CR 26 on Monday around 8 p.m.

The Sierra ran off the west side of the road and collided with a barrier.

According to police, the driver was taken to the hospital for a fractured face and her five-year-old passenger was treated for a laceration to his eye.

The driver was cited for driving too fast for road conditions.

Another vehicle driving southbound on S.R. 19 attempted to avoid the crash but was also traveling too fast for road conditions. It spun out and collided with a third vehicle, which resulted in a fourth vehicle getting rear-ended.

The driver of the second vehicle, a 25-year-old Goshen woman, was also cited for driving too fast for road conditions.

Police said the road near the crash was “severely icy.”

The driver of the fourth vehicle was taken to the hospital for back pain.
