FERDINAND — A Kentucky man’s car needed a tow after a Tuesday morning collision on Ferdinand’s south side.

Juan P. Madrid Diaz, 40, Owensboro, was westbound on Industrial Park Road in a 2009 Chevrolet Malibu when the 6:35 a.m. mishap occurred at Scenic Hills Drive, according to the Ferdinand Police Department.

Madrid Diaz slowed for a turning semi in front of him and, when he did, his car was rear-ended by a 1998 Dodge Ram driven by Dean O. Mullis, 42, Bristow, police said.

Both drivers were wearing seat belts and no injuries were reported.

Damage was estimated at $6,000 to the Madrid Diaz Chevrolet and $1,000 to the Mullis Dodge.

A Berg’s Garage wrecker assisted with scene cleanup and towed the Madrid Diaz Chevrolet, which was totaled.
