ELKHART — An 8-year-old girl was hurt in a two-car accident Monday evening, July 1.

Baylee Kinast of Elkhart was taken to Elkhart General Hospital with neck pain after the 6:20 p.m. accident.

She was a passenger in a 2012 Chrysler 200 being driven by Krystle L. Holt, 26, of Mishawaka, north on Ash Road, south of C.R. 12. It was behind a 2003 Ford Focus being driven by Jeffrey L. Burkett, 57, of Elkhart. Burkett stepped on the brakes for slowing traffic due to congestion. Officers said Holt’s car was following too closely and rear-ended Burkett’s car.

Holt was cited for following too closely and false registration.
