Two vehicle collision on College Ave.


Lynn L. Martin

The white Dodge pickup struck the gold Toyota when it turned in front of the pickup on College Avenue. Lane Beeson of Shattuck said he thought the street was four lanes instead of two and started to pass the slowing car on the right.

Some confusion about the number of lanes on an Alva street led to a two-vehicle collision on Sunday, June 18. The wreck occurred at 2:09 p.m. on College Avenue south of Locust Street.

Mark Edward Bellah, 53, of Alva was driving a 2017 gold Toyota south on College. Lane Scott Beeson, 16, of Shattuck was driving a 1999 white Dodge RAM pickup south on College.

Bellah attempted to make a right turn to the west into a private drive when his car was struck on the passenger side, causing damage to the front and rear passenger side doors.

Alva Police Officer Keith Dale spoke to Beeson, who said Bellah was driving slowly in front of him. He said he thought the roadway was a four-lane road and attempted to pass Bellah on the outside when Bellah made a turn in front of him. Beeson said he did not see a turn signal but believed Bellah's vehicle was left of center before making the turn. Bellah said he was driving south on College when he activated his right turn signal to turn. Beeson's vehicle had been moved before Officer Dale arrived.
