The Christian County Sheriff's Office reports an accident last week on Route 48 a couple of miles south of Stonington. 

 

According to reports, three different vehicles were headed south on 48 around 4:00 pm December 16th when the lead vehicle, driven by 62 year-old David A. Cox of Decatur, signaled a left turn. Because of the vehicle in the middle, the driver in back, 30 year-old Scott G. Tirpak Jr. of Kincaid, couldn't see the signal and attempted to pass. Tirpak's 2003 Mitsubishi reportedly struck Cox's vehicle on the front drivers side. Tirpak then reportedly lost control, overturning twice and coming to rest on the vehicle's roof.

 

The reports don't mention any injuries or citations.
