Man Cited for Rear-ending Car on I-69

2017-09-11

A driver who told police he rear-ended another car on I-69 Sunday morning on I-69 in DeKalb County after being cut off by a third vehicle was cited for following too close.

The DeKalb County Sheriff’s Department say that Justin M. Jewett of Ohio was driving south when he ran into the back of another vehicle. Jewett told police he had been cut-off and that’s what caused him to hit the other vehicle.

Reports indicate that the driver of the other vehicle, Andrew S. Tudor of New Castle, Indiana, lost control and drove down the embankment on the west side of the interstate. The vehicle came to rest in some bushes along a fence.

Tudor complained of back pain and was taken to a hospital for treatment.

The incident took place just before 10 a.m. near the 325 mile marker near Auburn.
