Everett Hawn, 65, Wakarusa, complained of chest and left-side pain and was taken to Elkhart General Hospital. His injuries also were considered non-life-threatening.

The accident occurred at 1:22 p.m. Saturday at the intersection of Ind. 119 and CR 7.

According to an Elkhart County Sheriff’s Department news release, Hawn’s 2015 Jeep Wrangler was going south on CR 7 and stopped north of Ind. 119. Pippen’s 2007 Chevy Cobalt was going northeast on Ind. 119 when Hawn’s Jeep pulled out in front of Pippen. Pippen’s Cobalt hit the Jeep on the driver’s side.

The Jeep had passenger-side damage, while the Cobalt had heavy front-end damage.

Both drivers were wearing their seat belts. Hawn was cited for failure to yield the right of way, while Pippen was given citations for expired plates and false plates.

Drugs and alcohol do not appear to be factors in the crash, the report states.
