A two-vehicle accident near the intersection of Jackson Street and United States 40 closed the roadway for a brief period of time Tuesday afternoon.

According to Brazil City Police Department officials at the scene, it is unclear who hit whom during the accident that happened shortly before 3:30 p.m.

The passenger car sustained heavy damage to the front end during the collision, while the dual-cab pickup truck was heavily damaged on the front and the left front wheel well on the driver's side.

Although the air bag in the passenger car worked during the accident, the driver was treated by TransCare personnel for chest pain and injuries at the scene. The juvenile driver of the pickup truck was reported to be complaining of neck pain at the scene.

However, no further information -- including identification of the victims -- was available as of press time due to pending notification of family members and the ongoing investigation.

Not even the make and models of the vehicles? I'll step up to say the truck appears to be a silver Chevy or GMC and the car an older model maroon Lincoln or Mercury.

Hope there were no serious injuries other than what was reported.

The driver of the passenger car Maurizio Calabrese was seriously injured, he was transfered to a Indianapolis Hospital today. He has a broken sternum, cracked ribs, fractured spine, fluid on the lungs, and bleeding in the brain. He is currently being monitored carefully. That intersection is not a Y road and people turn onto jackson going way too fast.

Maurizio is doing better, the bleeding in his brain stopped. He has surgery planned on his spine and is breathing a bit better. Anna and the family would like to thank everyone for their concerns and prayers. The restaurant will still open just a small delay. Please continue to pray for his recovery.
