    A two-car accident today, Sept. 10, at C.R. 17 and C.R. 18 just east of Elkhart sent two people to the hospital.

    The mishap this afternoon occurred when a car headed south on C.R. 17 turned east onto C.R. 18 into the path of a northbound van, according to Patrolman Kwau Kuntu of the Elkhart County Sheriff’s Department.

    Two people, one from each car, were transported to Elkhart General Hospital for what were believed to be non-life threatening injuries. Their names and other details weren’t immediately available.

    The van caught fire after the accident and was partially torched. As of around 4:45 p.m., the northbound half of C.R. 17 was partially restricted to traffic.
