HOLLAND — One person was transported for treatment after a Wednesday afternoon accident north of Holland involving two pickup trucks.
Michael B. Weales, 49, Jasper, was northbound on State Road 161 in a 2005 Chevrolet 1500 series pickup truck when the 4:31 p.m. accident occurred at County Road 800S, according to the Dubois County Sheriff’s Office.
Deputies said Sean M. Woodruff, 17, Indianapolis, who was eastbound on County Road 800S in a 1998 Ford F-150, stopped at the intersection with the highway, then proceeded, failing to yield the right of way to the Weales Chevrolet.
The Weales Chevrolet struck the passenger side of the Woodruff Ford behind the cab area, according to the sheriff’s office.
Both trucks stopped in the grass on the east side of the highway.
A passenger in the Woodruff Ford, Deniss Villalta, 18, Huntingburg, was transported by ambulance to Memorial Hospital and Health Care Center for treatment of a head injury. A hospital spokeswoman said he was treated and released.
All other vehicle occupants declined treatment at the scene, according to the sheriff’s office.
Total damage was estimated between $10,000 and $25,000.
A Ruxer Ford wrecker towed the Woodruff Ford, while a Uebelhor & Sons wrecker towed the Weales Chevrolet.
Memorial Hospital Emergency Medical Services also assisted.
