IN Woman Causes Wreck After Car Was Repo'ed

Here's the story from the Herald Argus:
A woman caused a crash with a tow truck that was driving off with her car, which was being repossessed.

According to police, 32-year-old Barbara Sweeney of South Bend was at a Fish Lake home September 16 when she was approached by a man who asked her to sign paperwork for him to repossess her car.

She refused to sign the documents so the man began driving off with the 2000 Saturn.

Police said Sweeney took off after the tow truck in another vehicle westbound on county Road 200 South.

After about a two-mile chase, police said the woman passed the tow truck and veered back in front of it, then slammed on her brakes, which caused both vehicles to collide.

Police said Sweeney and the tow truck driver, Dennis Jones, 48, of Elkhart, both complained of pain over their entire bodies.
