Accident follows turn without signalOctober 18, 2019
From Local Sources
IRELAND — The lack of a turn signal led to an accident Monday west of Ireland.
Richard W. Rudolph, 80, Jasper, was westbound on State Road 56 in a 2002 Chevrolet 1500 series pickup truck when the 11:50 a.m. accident occurred at County Road 300N, according to the Dubois County Sheriff’s Office.
Rudolph slowed to turn left onto the county road but did not have his turn signal activated, according to the sheriff’s office.
Marie C. Patton, 61, Jasper, trailing Rudolph’s truck in a 2012 Ford Escape, thought he was just driving slowly and attempted to pass.
A deputy said the driver-side front of Rudolph’s truck made contact with the passenger side of the passing Patton SUV.
Damage was estimated between $2,500 and $5,000.
