A Niles woman received minor injuries in a two-vehicle accident Wednesday, Dec. 30.
Shirley Vargo, 65, was transported By Edwardsburg Ambulance to Memorial Hospital in South Bend.
Sheriff Joseph M. Underwood Jr. reports that on Dec. 30 at approximately 5:30 p.m., deputies from the Cass County Sheriff’s Office responded to a personal injury accident on U.S. Highway 12 near Bell Road in Milton Township.
A vehicle driven by Vargo had stopped on U.S. Highway 12 in order to make a left turn. An eastbound vehicle driven by Ryan Linn, 22, of Elkhart didn’t observe Vargo turning and rear-ended Vargo’s vehicle.
Linn and his two passengers were not injured.
Seatbelts were worn by all subjects involved, and alcohol does not appear to have been a factor.
The Niles Township Fire Department assisted at the scene.
