Officials with the Lenox Police Department report a two-vehicle accident Saturday afternoon at Brooks and Nebraska Streets was apparently caused by another, unidentified driver. An investigation determined that a 2011 Chevy pickup driven by 71-year old Richard Trucks, of Lenox, was traveling south on Brooks Street, and a 2000 Oldsmobile  van driven by 21-year old Christain Collins, of Lenox, was northbound on Brooks.

Both drivers stated an unidentified silver pickup was southbound next to Trucks’ vehicle, and forced him over the center line. The action caused the Trucks’ and Collins vehicles to side swipe each other. Damage from the mishap amounted to $6,000. Officials say Collins was issued a citation for failure to have a valid driver’s license.
