ELKHART — One woman was taken to the hospital Thursday, April 18, after a five-vehicle accident on East Jackson Boulevard.

One driver said he and the others involved in the accident were headed west and stopped at the stoplight at East Jackson and Goshen Avenue just before 5:30 p.m. when one car hit another from behind, pushing the vehicles in front of it into each other.

A white sedan with heavy front-end damage appeared to have struck a dark gray minivan, starting the domino-effect accident.

The woman driving the third car in the line was taken to the hospital with complaints of chest pain.

The other drivers were uninjured.

Emergency crews closed all lanes of East Jackson between Kenwood and Kenyon avenues to investigate the accident.

 A 15-year-old boy, seen sitting on a stretcher center, who stowed away in the wheel well of a flight from San Jose, Calif., to Maui is loaded into an ambulance at Kahului Airport in Kahului, Maui, Hawaii Sunday afternoon, April 20, 2014. The boy survived the trip halfway across the Pacific Ocean unharmed despite frigid temperatures at 38,000 feet and a lack of oxygen, FBI and airline officials said. FBI spokesman Tom Simon in Honolulu told The Associated Press on Sunday night that the boy was questioned by the FBI after being discovered on the tarmac at the Maui airport with no identification.
