HUNTINGBURG — Police ticketed a motorist after a single-vehicle mishap Tuesday southwest of Huntingburg.

Jose M. Calderon, 33, Huntingburg, was eastbound on Old Road 64 in a 2016 Dodge van when the 6:55 a.m. accident occurred west of County Road 400W, according to the Dubois County Sheriff’s Office.

Calderon told a deputy he had swerved to miss a deer when his Dodge ran off the south side of the road. The vehicle struck a Frontier Communications pole and a road sign post belonging to the Dubois County Highway Department before stopping in a cornfield.

The sheriff’s office said a second pole was damaged when lines were pulled down east of the broken pole.

Police said Calderon complained of knee pain but declined to be transported for treatment.

A deputy cited Calderon for driving with no insurance and for driving while suspended.

A KARS wrecker and the Huntingburg Police Department assisted.
