According to a Creston Police report, Blaisure, driving a 2001 Ford south on South Elm Street, did not try to stop in time for a 2017 Nissan, driven by Nichole Dawn Tucker, 45, of Prescott, that was stopped facing south at the South Elm and West Taylor streets intersection, and had very little tire tread left, so when she tried to stop, she slid and rear ended Tucker’s vehicle.
