From Local Sources

HUNTINGBURG — Two ambulances responded to a three-vehicle accident Tuesday afternoon, but police indicated those transported had only minor injuries.

Charles Stetter of Huntingburg was northbound on Chestnut Street in a 1996 Chevrolet SUV when the 4:51 p.m. accident occurred at Sixth Street, according to the Huntingburg Police Department.

Police said Stetter failed to yield the right of way and his SUV struck the driver’s-side front door of a westbound 2012 Kia passenger car driven by Karena Vonderheide of Petersburg.

Both vehicles stopped in the southbound lane of Chestnut Street but not before the Vonderheide Kia struck a 2017 Ford pickup that was stationary at the intersection facing south.

The Ford was driven by Steven McManaway of Ferdinand, according to police.

Police said Memorial Hospital Emergency Medical Services was called to the scene to check out Vonderheide and her two juvenile passengers. Police said McManaway and the occupants of the Vonderheide vehicle were transported to Memorial Hospital and Health Care Center by ambulance to be treated for minor injuries. A hospital spokeswoman said Vonderheide and McManaway were treated and released.

The Huntingburg Volunteer Fire Department’s first responders and wreckers from Ruxer Ford and Uebelhor & Sons also assisted.
