Two-vehicle crash caused by weather

Weather conditions played a part in a two-vehicle accident Friday, according to the Jamestown Police Department.

The crash happened at 3:28 p.m. at the intersection of 13th Street and 12th Avenue Northeast.

Paige Peterson, 18, Jamestown, was driving a 2007 Nissan east on 13th Street approaching the intersection with 12th Avenue.

The report said at the time of the accident the temperature was in the mid-30s with freezing rain falling creating slick road conditions.

Richard Heinert, 73, Jamestown, had stopped a 2008 Jeep at the stop sign on 12th Avenue and proceeded north into the intersection with 13th Street. Peterson struck the vehicle that Heinert was driving.

Peterson and Heinert wore seat belts. Peterson declined medical treatment at the scene. She was taken by her mother later to the Sanford Health Jamestown Clinic where she was diagnosed with a concussion. Heinert didn’t seek medical treatment for a sore neck.

Damage was estimated at $4,500 for the Nissan and $2,400 for the Jeep.

Heinert was cited for failure to yield after stopping
