From Local Sources
DUBOIS — One driver said she was blinded by a trailing vehicle’s headlights after a head-on crash early Monday north of the Dubois Crossroads.
Sharon B. Hall, 53, Dubois, was northbound on Hickory Grove Road in a 1996 Chevrolet Blazer when the 5:35 a.m. accident occurred north of State Road 56, according to the Dubois County Sheriff’s Department.
A deputy said Hall, who was attempting to turn left into a private drive, drove head-on into a 2007 Ford pickup driven by James T. Wininger, 72, Dubois.
Wininger had been westbound and was following a curve turning southwest when the vehicles collided in the southbound lane, according to the sheriff’s department.
Hall told a deputy she could not see because of the headlights from a vehicle behind her SUV.
Total damage was estimated between $5,000 and $10,000.
