Bridge ice claims Jeep Wrangler

From Local Sources

MALTERSVILLE — Icy conditions Wednesday morning factored into a rollover accident at the Maltersville Bridge.

Jeremy S. Miller, 42, Ferdinand, was northbound on State Road 162 in a 1993 Jeep Wrangler when the 5:01 a.m. accident occurred 500 feet north of County Road 230N, according to the Dubois County Sheriff’s Department.

Miller advised his Jeep encountered a patch of ice on the bridge that resulted in a spin that sent the vehicle off the east side of the highway.

A deputy said Miller escaped injury when the Jeep rolled down an embankment.

Damage was estimated between $2,500 and $5,000.

A Berg’s Garage wrecker assisted.
