Driving lesson ends with cars damaged

A driving lesson went wrong for a 12-year-old Thursday.

According to Goshen police, Pamela Yoder gave her 12-year-old grandson, Kendrick Jordan of Elkhart, permission to backup her 2003 Hyundai Santa Fe, which was parked along a private drive at 4364 Ashton Pines Drive. The incident occurred at 8:58 a.m.

Police report Jordan began backing up the vehicle while Yoder was standing outside near the passenger door. Police said Jordan pressed the accelerator too hard, causing the Hyundai to rapidly go backwards. Yoder attempted to get control of the vehicle but was knocked to the ground, causing abrasions to her left elbow and lower leg.

Police said the Hyundai continued across the private lane and collided with an unoccupied 2009 Nissan Altima owned by Heidi Robinson of Bristol. Jordan turned the Hyundai sharply as it continued backing rapidly. The Hyundai then collided with a 2010 Toyota Venza owned by Natalya Ivanova of Elkhart. All the vehicles were drivable after being damaged, according to police.

Yoder refused medical treatment for her injuries and was issued a ticket for permitting an unlicensed driver to operate a motor vehicle.
