Three-car pile-up on Hayes Drive

By The Mercury

Three cars were involved in a small pile-up Wednesday in the 900 block of Hayes Drive that resulted in one of the drivers being hospitalized.

Lt. Josh Kyle said Ashley Brumfield, 20, Manhattan, was driving her 1999 Pontiac Grand Am when she reportedly looked down to change the radio station and rear-ended a 2005 Saturn L series sedan, driven by Jutta Titterton, 54, Manhattan.

Kyle said Titterton in turn struck the rear end of a 2010 Chevrolet Impala driven by Steven Spade, 57, Manhattan.

Riley County EMS transported Titterton to Mercy Regional Health Center for possible injuries and neck pain.

Officers cited Brumfield for inattentive driving.
