A two-vehicle accident Tuesday morning sent two Brazil residents to the hospital.
At approximately 9:01 a.m., Tuesday, officers were dispatched to the intersection of Walnut Street and National Avenue for the accident.
According to Brazil Police Department Sgt. Dave Archer, Pamela Hite, 47, Brazil, was sitting at the stoplight of Walnut Street and National Avenue in a 2010 Mitsubishi when she was allegedly struck from behind by 2008 Hyundai, driven by Allen Skelton, 68, also from Brazil.
Both drivers, according to Archer, were heading westbound.
Archer said Skelton told officials he had either "fell asleep or passed out" prior to running into the back of Hite's vehicle.
Both drivers were transported to St. Vincent Clay Hospital via TransCare for various injuries.
Archer said Skelton suffered a broken finger while Hite complained of neck and back pain.
Both were released later in the day.
Other agencies responding to the scene included the Brazil Fire Department.
