Curve, speed find car in ditch

From Local Sources

HAYSVILLE — A wrecker was needed to pull a car out of a ditch Monday afternoon east of Haysville at the Sendelweck Curve.

Jacob D. Sander, 20, Dubois, was eastbound on State Road 56 in a 1996 Dodge Intrepid when the 3:40 p.m. mishap occurred east of County Road 175E, according to the Dubois County Sheriff’s Office.

A deputy reported it appeared Sander entered a sharp curve with too much speed, which sent the car into a ditch on the south side of the highway.

Damage to the passenger-side frame of the Dodge was estimated between $1,000 and $2,500.

A Uebelhor & Sons wrecker pulled the car from the ditch.
