WAVERLY POLICE

DEPARTMENT

Nov. 13: At 2:38 p.m., police responded to a two-vehicle accident at the intersection of 11th Street and Fourth Avenue Southwest. A 17-year-old female, driving a 2002 Chevrolet Trailblazer, and a 15-year-old male, driving a 2002 Chevrolet S-10, were both backing out of parking spaces on opposite sides of the aisle in the Waverly-Shell Rock High School parking lot. Police stated that the damage indicated that the Trailblazer was further out into the aisle before the S-10 backed out and ran into it. The S-10 driver then left the scene, but the Trailblazer driver knew who he was. Police located and spoke with the S-10 driver, who said he “heard something” when he was backing out, saw the Trailblazer, and though that the driver had waved him away, so he went home. The Trailblazer driver said her gesture was more of a, “What happened?” arms-in-the-air reaction. Both vehicles sustained minor damage. The S-10 driver was cited for leaving the scene of a property damage accident.
