Child transported to hospital after crash

A child was transported to the hospital after a two-vehicle accident in downtown Nashville June 1. It happened just before 5 p.m. at the intersection of South Van Buren and Washington streets.

Joshua C. Gardner, 25, Jeffersonville, reported he had come to a complete stop at the end of West Washington Street and saw the 1995 Ford truck — driven by Brian E. Snider, 43, Nashville — coming south on Van Buren Street. He said he thought the intersection was a four-way stop and he proceeded to cross the street.

Gardner’s 2000 Honda van was struck by Snider’s truck. Snider told police that Gardner had pulled out in front of him, an accident report by Nashville Police Officer Tyler Strahl states.

The van received “severe” damage to the driver’s side back door and was caved in where an infant child was seated, the accident report said.

EMS and Brown County (Nashville) Volunteer Fire Department firefighters were able to get the infant out of the car.

The parents requested the child be taken to Columbus Regional Hospital to be checked out.

Snider’s truck received damage to the front end. Both vehicles were towed.
