Driver clobbers mailbox, leaves scene

From Local Sources

JASPER — The Dubois County Sheriff’s Office is searching for a vehicle that struck a concrete mailbox post just northwest of Jasper before leaving the scene last weekend.

A deputy was called to investigate the accident at Ackerman Road and Bart Lane at 6:30 p.m. Saturday.

Judging by the debris and tire tracks left in a yard in the 1200 block of West Ackerman Road, a deputy said, the vehicle that struck the mailbox had been westbound on Ackerman Road.

The suspect vehicle, for an unknown reason, drove off the south side of the road, a deputy said. It struck the mailbox, continued westbound through a yard for a short distance and then entered back onto the road before leaving the scene westbound.

Total damage was estimated at less than $1,000.

Anyone with information on the incident is asked to call the Dubois County Sheriff’s Office at 812-482-3522.
