BIRDSEYE — Both cars were totaled and one driver suffered minor injury in a Friday morning accident at Oak Street and State Road 64.

Amy L. Aders, 34, Tell City, was southbound on Oak Street in a 1991 Ford Escort at the time of the 8:54 a.m. accident, according to the Dubois County Sheriff’s Department.

Deputies said Aders stopped at the highway intersection, then proceeded without noticing an eastbound 2005 Lexus ES330 driven by Michael H. Rendel, 65, Birdseye.

The sheriff’s department said the Aders Ford struck the Rendel Lexus in the intersection.

Aders suffered a forehead scrape and lower right leg pain, according to the sheriff’s department. She was treated at the scene, according to authorities.

Rendel escaped injury.

A deputy cited Aders for failing to yield the right of way and for operating a vehicle without financial responsibility.

The Birdseye Volunteer Fire Department’s first responders, Memorial Hospital Emergency Medical Services and a Berg’s Garage wrecker assisted.
