(JASPER) - Jasper Police arrested a Loogootee man Wednesday morning following a two-car accident on US 231 near HRJ Lane.

Police say 40-year-old Darren Lannan told police he was traveling north on US 231 when the glare of sun caused him to veer left of center into the path of a vehicle driven by 37-year-old Kenneth Speed, of Huntingburg.

The crash caused Lannan to spin 180 degrees, landing on the southbound before coming to a rest on the southbound shoulder. Speed's vehicle veered off of the west side of the roadway, coming to a rest in the grass.

Neither Lannan nor Speed were injured.

However, a passenger in Lannan's vehicle, 28-year-old Mikilauna Walsh, of Huntingburg, was taken to Jasper Memorial after complaining of chest pain.

Police say Lannan tested positive for marijuana and ecstasy.

He is facing preliminary charges of operating a vehicle left of center and operating a vehicle while intoxicated on a controlled substance.
