NEW PARIS — Two teenagers were hospitalized late Saturday after the pickup truck in which they were riding flipped on C.R. 21 south of C.R. 44, west of town.
The 1997 Dodge Ram was headed north on C.R. 21, driven by Hattie E. Lemert, 19, of Goshen, and veered off the road because of ice, according to a press release from the Elkhart County Sheriff’s Department.
After leaving the roadway, the truck entered a ditch and then rolled, landing on its top. Lemert and a passenger, Brett S. Ralston, 19, of Goshen, complained of back and neck pain. They were taken to IU Health Goshen Hospital for treatment.
Both were also ticketed for failing to wear seatbelts, police said.
