KENDALLVILLE - A pair of two vehicle crashes on U-S 6 west of Kendallville kept Noble County police busy Friday afternoon.

The sheriff’s department says both crashes happened around 3:35 p-m between 500 and 600 East on U-S 6.

A car driven by 46-year-old Thomas Chelbus of Sturgis was struck from behind by a second car driven by 19-year-old Joshua Stewart of Albion. Both were westbound and Chelbus slowed when his vision was obstructed by smoke from a passing concrete truck. Stewart said the smoke also obstructed his vision. He suffered a cut to his wrist.

In the second crash an SUV driven by 72-year-old Sarah Elliot of Rome City was struck from behind by a mini van driven by 18-year-old Tristen Sutton of Rome City. Sutton told deputies the smoke from the concrete truck made him unable to see the roadway and Elliot’s SUV.

Elliot suffered head and neck pain and was taken to Parkview Noble Hospital. Sutton and 17-year-old Landon Sharp of Avilla both suffered stomach pain following the collision.

Witnesses told deputies the concrete truck owned by Erie Haven turned north onto 600 East. Police then made contact with the driver to admitted to having a malfunction.
