(EDEN TOWNSHIP) - Two persons were injured Thursday afternoon in a LaGrange County rear end collision. The LaGrange County Sheriffs Department says they were told by 74-year-old Marvin Langston of Huntington that he was watching a buggy on the side of the road while he was heading south on State Road 5 near 700 South at about 1:35pm when he looked back to the road and saw a stopped vehicle driven by 21-year-old Dakota Charters of Topeka.
Charters was waiting to make a left turn at the time of the accident. Langston tried to stop but was unsuccessful. Charters and a front seat passenger, 17-year-old Chyenne Charters of Topeka, both complained of neck pain.
The Charters vehicle was described as a total loss while Langston's vehicle sustained $2,500 in damage. The accident is still under investigation.
