There were three vehicles northbound on S.R. 54 including a full-sized, extended-cab black Chevrolet pickup truck, followed by Kenneth Nalley, Jr. of Springville in a Chevrolet Monte Carlo, who in turn was followed by Laura Cullison of Owensburg in a Saturn. The pickup truck went past the legal left turn onto S.R. 45, then slammed on their brakes and made an illegal left turn onto S.R. 45. Nalley slammed on his brakes and avoided striking the pickup truck in the rear. Cullison slammed on her brakes and veered right, but slid on the wet pavement and was unable to avoid striking Nalley in the rear. The unstruck pickup truck just left the scene.
