A two-vehicle crash Tuesday evening at 7:17 on U.S. 6 ended with a teenage driver receiving minor injuries.
The Marshall County Central Dispatch Center received a call of a two-vehicle collision between a semi-tractor trailer and a passenger car at the intersection of U.S. 6 and Tamarack Road. When county officers arrived on the scene, it was determined that the vehicle traveling on Tamarack Road failed to yield the right of way to traffic on U.S. 6.
The vehicle, a 2016 Toyota Rav4 was driven by 16-year-old Nadia Stetler of Bourbon. The police report stated that the driver stopped at the stop sign and then pulled out in front of the semi driven by 62-year-old Efrain Romero of Florida who was heading west.
The impact of the collision caused the semi to run off the roadway on the south side of U.S. 6 while the Toyota came to rest south of U.S. 6 on Tamarack Road.
Nadia Stetler was treated for minor abrasions but released to family. The semi-driver, Efrain Romero refused medical treatment at the scene.
The two vehicles were towed by Reichert & Knepp Towing.
The Marshall County Sheriff’s Department was assisted by the Walkerton Police Department, Walkerton EMS, and Polk Township Fire Department.
