Around 4:30 p.m., Sunday, a 911 call to the Clay County Sheriff's Department reported a rear end collision involving two vehicles just south of the intersection of North C.R 750 N. and S.R. 59.
Driving a 1992 Chevy Truck, Aaron Stewart, 23, of Brazil, was attempting to turn into a driveway on the east side of the highway when he was struck from behind by a 1993 Honda Accord.
The driver of the Accord, Christopher Short, 20, of Brazil, told officers he attempted to stop, but couldn't and slid on the pavement before hitting Stewart.
Although speed was not a factor in the accident,
Deputy Josh Clarke told The Brazil Times the impact of the vehicles busted the Honda's radiator, sending a plum of steam in the air that could be seen for miles.
Both vehicles sustained heavy damage and traffic was re-routed by members of Jackson Township Volunteer Fire Department for about an hour while the highway was cleared.
Members of the Brazil City Police Department, Posey Volunteer Fire Department and Search and Rescue responded to the accident scene. Trans-Care was also on the scene, but the drivers sustained no injuries.
Officials reported an unidentified juvenile in Stewart's vehicle was complaining of pain at the scene and some minor injuries, but treatment was refused.
