Theresa Ann Kasper, 50, of Weldon was cited for failure to provide financial liability after an accident 5:38 p.m. Wednesday, Oct. 11, at the intersection of Southwest Boulevard and U.S. Highway 34.

Kasper, driving a 2001 Mercury, was at a stop sign waiting for another driver, Sheena Marie Chipp, 34, of Chariton, driving a 2011 Lincoln, to turn onto Highway 34. Kasper told officers she looked toward the sun and thought she saw Chipp drive away in her peripheral vision. Unfortunately, Chipp had simply moved forward, and Kasper ran into her back bumper.
