Witness Reportedly Convinces Driver To Return To Scene Of Accident

Last updated on Thursday, February 5, 2009

(BEDFORD) - A good Samaritan from Mitchell kept police from having to search for a vehicle that reportedly caused an accident and then left.

Lawrence County police reports say 36-year-old Amber Bugh of Bedford pulled out in front of 21-year-old Amanda Watson of Bedford on IN-37 about a half mile south of US-50. Watson was unable to stop before impact, and slammed into the rear of Bugh's pickup.

The report then says Bugh left the scene, but was followed a witness to the wreck, Tony Ellis of Mitchell. Ellis reportedly flashed his lights at Bugh's truck, and eventually got it to stop and convinced her to return to the scene of the accident.

Watson and her passenger, 24-year-old Michael Lipscomb of Bedford both were taken by ambulance for complaints of head pain.

Lipscomb and Ellis both say it appeared as if Bugh's truck was just suddenly there, and didn't have it's lights on.

No citations have been listed.
