Two-Vehicle Accident in Knox Sends Two to Hospital

Crews investigate the accident on U.S. 35 in Knox

Two Knox residents were injured in a two vehicle accident in Knox Monday afternoon.

Clinton Collins, 19, of Grovertown, told Knox City Police officers that he was on U.S. 35 approaching McDonald’s when he saw another vehicle in front of him. He attempted to use his mirrors to execute a lane change and by the time his eyes returned to the front of the vehicle, the vehicle had stopped at the entrance to Five Star and Collins was unable to avoid a collision.

The driver in the second car, Marinela Dolinski, of Knox, complained of back and neck pain and a passenger, Maria Oros, of Knox, who recently had back surgery was experiencing pain from the impact. Both were transported to IU Health Starke Hospital for medical treatment. Collins was not injured.

Knox City Police investigated an accident Tuesday afternoon where George Thompson said he was traveling east on State Road 8 and a vehicle in front of him, driven by Kenneth Mackey, Jr. of Argos, slowed to other traffic. Thompson said he applied his brakes but due to the wet road surface, he slid into Mackey’s vehicle. Both vehicles sustained damage, but no injuries were reported.
