From Local Sources
FERDINAND — Total damage reached $5,000 in a Friday evening car-versus-minivan mishap in the parking lot of a south-side retirement and assisted living facility.
Patricia D. Copeland, 47, Santa Claus, was leaving Scenic Hills Care Center, 311 E. First St., in a 2016 Chevrolet Impala at the time of the 6:53 p.m. accident, according to the Ferdinand Police Department.
Copeland said she looked down to adjust her seat belt and, when she looked up, her car was in the other lane.
The Impala struck a 2006 Dodge Caravan driven by Kevin J. Wess, 62, Troy.
Wess told police he saw the car come into his lane and honked his horn but the vehicle still struck his minivan.
Damage was estimated at $3,500 to the Copeland Chevrolet and $1,500 to the Wess Dodge.
Both vehicles were able to be driven from the scene.
There were no injuries and no citations were issued.
