Three people were injured in a two vehicle crash.

The Elkhart County Sheriff's Office says 38 year old Crystal Knafel of Goshen was driving north on State Road 13, heading towards South County Line Road at 12:30 PM Saturday. A second vehicle, driven by 19 year old Grant Martin of Elkhart, was heading west on South County Line Road.

Deputies say Martin failed to stop at the intersection of State Road 13 and South County Line Road and continued west. Knafel's vehicle struck Martin, who went off the road and into the ditch.

Knafel and her passenger, 30 year old Krista Bontrager, were both taken to Goshen General Hospital for neck and head pain.

Martin had minor pain and soreness. He was cited for failure to stop at a stop sign and for distracted driving, using a cell phone.
