Three-car wreck leaves no injuries

Thursday, October 9, 2003

There were no apparent serious injuries in a three car accident yesterday at 11:14 a.m. at U.S. 40 and Wheeler Street in front of the Wal-Mart shopping area.

According to a report by Brazil Officer Anthony Hapenny, Margaret Bucksot, 78, of Rockville, was stopped in the left lane of eastbound U.S. 40 in her 1994 Caravan Dodge waiting to turn into the west entrance of Wal-Mart.

Adam Hayes, 22, of Greencastle, was westbound on U.S. 40 traveling in the right/driving lane. He was with his wife and two young children. Bucksot did not see Hayes and turned into the Wal-Mart entrance in front of him. Hayes was unable to stop and collided with the front of Bucksot's vehicle.

Robert Krackenberger, 78, from Indianapolis, was at the west entrance to Wal-Mart waiting to turn right on to U.S. 40 in his 2001 Ford Taurus. Another vehicle was in front of him also waiting to turn right.

Hayes's vehicle careened off of Bucksot's car and struck the driver's side of Krackenberger's Taurus.

There was moderate damage to each vehicle. Hayes's wife complained of back pain but refused medical treatment at the scene.

The accident is still under investigation by the Brazil City Police.
