From Local Sources

MALTERSVILLE — One vehicle was considered totaled after a two-car collision Thursday afternoon east of the Maltersville area.

Glenn A. Kempf, 69, Ferdinand, had been eastbound on County Road 230S and was attempting to turn onto St. Anthony Road West in a 2009 Dodge Challenger at the time of the 5:03 p.m. accident, according to the Dubois County Sheriff’s Office.

A deputy said Kempf did not see a southbound 2002 Pontiac Bonneville driven by Brenda L. Beck, 63, Huntingburg, and drove into its path.

Beck, who had the right of way, was unable to stop in time to avoid striking the front, driver’s side quarter panel of the Dodge.

A deputy said Beck’s Pontiac was a total loss, while damage to Kempf’s Challenger was estimated at $5,000.

No injuries were reported at the time, according to the sheriff’s office.

A Sternberg Automotive Group wrecker assisted.
