From Local Sources

IRELAND — A Daviess County motorist escaped injury Friday evening when her minivan collided with a deer east of Ireland.

Tearsha D. Logston, 26, Washington, was westbound on State Road 56 in a 2005 Dodge when the 6:36 p.m. accident occurred in the Ireland Flats, according to the Dubois County Sheriff’s Department.

The sheriff’s department said Logston’s vehicle struck a deer that was on the highway. The deer was then struck by an eastbound vehicle, but that damage to the second vehicle was very minor.

Damage to the grille, hood, radiator and engine compartment areas of the Logston Dodge was estimated between $5,000 and $10,000.

Myers Towing, Petersburg, assisted at the scene.
