Four people were injured in a weekend accident east of Greenwood.
Greenwood resident Andrew Copeland, 43, was driving south on Matthews Road near Watson Road when he saw a car in front of him turning left at the bottom of a hill, according to a Johnson County Sheriff’s Office report.
Copeland told police he tried to avoid hitting the other car, driven by Indianapolis resident Martin Nilsson, but still hit the driver’s side of Nilsson’s car, the report said. Nilsson’s car then spun around and struck a tree, according to the report.
Nilsson complained of cuts on his face and was taken to Indiana University Health Methodist Hospital in Indianapolis.
Three children in Copeland’s car also complained of face and chest pains and were taken to Franciscan St. Francis Health-Indianapolis.
All four people have been treated and released, according to hospital spokespeople.
