Woman cited for careless driving after rear ending vehicle

One person was injured Thursday afternoon when a vehicle rear-ended another on Havens Avenue in Mitchell.

Jordan Adam, 29, of Mount Vernon, was driving a 1999 Lincoln Towncar east on Havens Avenue. Frances Mathis, 81, of Mitchell, was also driving east on Havens in her 1995 Ford Contour when she failed to stop and rear ended Adam's vehicle, according to Mitchell Police Officer Brian Larson.

Airbags deployed in the crash, which injured Mathis and shattered the Contour's windshield.

Mathis' husband was in the vehicle and Adam had four passengers, all of which were uninjured.

Everyone was wearing seat belts.

Mathis was cited for careless driving, Larson said.
