HUNTINGBURG — A Huntingburg couple was treated after a Monday evening motorcycle accident on the city’s west side.

Tim M. Mullen, 50, Huntingburg, was eastbound on First Street on a 2007 Yamaha motorcycle when the 7:39 p.m. accident occurred at Walnut Street, according to the Dubois County Sheriff’s Office.

The couple had been wearing helmets, according to the sheriff’s office.

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