Police Respond to Three-Vehicle Accident

Sanibel Police responded to a three-vehicle accident at 9:37 a.m. Monday, Feb. 15 at the intersection of Periwinkle Way and Casa Ybel Road. Joyce Jacobs of Sanibel was turning east onto Periwinkle from Casa Ybel, when she attempted to slow down for a vehicle operated by Gregory Arlington of Sanibel turning eastbound from the parking lot of Pfeifer Realty Group.

Jacobs placed her foot on the accelerator instead of the brake, which caused her vehicle to strike the front right passenger side fender of Arlington’s vehicle. Arlington’s vehicle was then pushed into the stopped westbound vehicle of Mark Rossardt of Aurora, Colo. Jacobs’ vehicle continued onto the shared use path before coming to a stop.

No injuries were reported.
