No one was injured in a four vehicle accident that occurred on South Banker Street on Wednesday.
According to a press release from the Effingham Police Department, the accident occurred at 12:03 pm on the South Banker CSX Overpass. The release stated that a vehicle driven by 17 year old, Haley K Koester, of Effingham rear-ended a vehicle driven by 28 year old, Wendy M Probst, of Dieterich. This caused a chain reaction of Probst’s vehicle rear-ending a vehicle driven by 24 year old, Aaron M Walters, of Effingham and causing Walters’ vehicle to rear-end a vehicle driven by 92 year old, Lowell E Billingsley, of Flora.
No injuries were reported; however, Koester was ticketed for failure to reduce speed to avoid an accident.
