Officials responded to a two-vehicle accident Tuesday afternoon involving a black Pontiac Sunfire (pictured) and a black Chevrolet pickup truck -- occupied by only the drivers. According to Sheriff's Department Deputy James Switzer, the pickup truck failed to yield at the intersection and pulled out in front of the Sunfire. Switzer said the driver of the Sunfire suffered a minor forehead laceration and the driver of the pickup had no major injury complaints. Both were treated at the scene, but refused any further medical attention. Switzer added accidents like these are good reminders for drivers to always check intersections carefully to make sure they are clear. Also responding included Trans Care, Jackson Township Volunteer Fire Department, Center Point Volunteer Fire Department and several deputies with the Sheriff's Department. [Order this photo]

Which intersection? Where was this? Looks like Harmony Rd (er 200E) and SR 42. Am I right?

Looks like it to me, good reporting I'd say.

"the pickup truck failed to yield at the intersection and pulled out in front of the Sunfire"

This happens FAR TOO OFTEN out in the country on both the South and North ends (my familiarity). I'm sure it happens everywhere in the country .. just like turning off your lights at night when approaching an intersection to see if someone is coming, then blowing right through the stop sign.

This is why you shouldn't disregard a stop sign .. or "roll through" it. It doesn't say SLOW DOWN .. it says STOP. Glad no one was hurt.
