Cup Holder Causes Crash 14 Dec 11

A loose cup holder reportedly resulted in a personal injury crash in Hutchinson last week.

Sandra Meier of Hutch was traveling east on 5th Avenue in a 2000 Saturn. Bradley Klima of Silver Lake was traveling south on Adams Street in Hutchinson approaching the intersection with 5th Avenue and failed to stop, causing his 1990 Jeep to t-bone Meier. Upon officer’s arrival, Klima stated that he saw the stop sign at he intersection, but couldn’t stop because a cup holder had fallen behind his brake pedal so that it could not be pressed down.

Meier’s vehicle was totaled and she was transported to the Hutchinson Hospital for treatment.
