Deer presumed dead after Dubois-area collisionNovember 30, 2018
From Local Sources
DUBOIS — A wrecker was needed at the scene of a pickup truck-versus-deer collision late Monday afternoon southeast of Dubois.
Chris Betz, 44, Celestine, was westbound on State Road 545 in a 2018 Ford F-150 when the 5:58 p.m. accident occurred east of Celestine Road North, according to the Dubois County Sheriff’s Department.
The sheriff’s department said the grille of Betz’s truck was completely gone after the vehicle collided with a deer that came onto the roadway from the south.
There was fluid on the ground, signaling the need for the truck to get a tow, according to the sheriff’s department.
A deputy was unable to locate the deer but it was presumed dead given the amount of damage to the truck.
The sheriff’s department estimated the damage between $2,500 and $5,000.
A Sternberg Automotive Group wrecker assisted.
