What started as a relatively slight two-vehicle collision left a
white-and-turquoise Geo Tracker sitting on its driver’s side a block
away just after 6 p.m. Saturday.
Capt. Nick Hedrick of the Kokomo Fire Department said the initial
accident occurred at the intersection of West Elm and Washington
Hedrick said the Tracker was headed south on Washington Street when
it collided with the front bumper of a maroon Chevrolet Monte Carlo
on West Elm Street.
He said it then took a full block for the mini-SUV to take out a
fire hydrant and rolling several times, before finally coming to
rest in front of the Veterans of Foreign Wars Post 1152 at the
intersection of Washington and West Havens streets.
Hedrick said that when first responders arrived, the driver of
Tracker was semi-conscious and was subsequently transported to St.
The occupants of the Monte Carlo suffered no major injuries. The
condition of the driver of Tracker was not released as of press
time. Kokomo Police, Kokomo Fire Department and Howard County
Emergency Management were among the responding agencies.
