ELKHART —A Goshen woman was treated for minor injuries sustained in a two-car accident Thursday afternoon.

Just after 2 p.m. this afternoon, Michelle Moyer, 47, was stopped at a red light in the left lane at the interesction of C.R. 17 and C.R. 14, two miles east of Elkhart.

Moyer complained of neck pain and was transported to Elkhart General Hospital, where she was treated and released.

Roberts was uninjured, but was cited for unsafe lane movement.
