From Local Sources
HUNTINGBURG — A motorist’s evasive action Friday afternoon south of Huntingburg resulted in an accident and a complaint of pain.
Caitlyn R. Schaber, 36, Owensboro, Kentucky, was northbound on U.S. 231 in a 2014 Chevrolet Cruze when the 5 p.m. accident occurred south of Holland Road East, according to the Dubois County Sheriff’s Department.
Deputies say Schaber swerved to avoid a cat in the roadway, which sent her car left of center and off the west side of the highway. The Cruze traveled down a steep embankment, continued north along a ditch line and stopped after striking another ditch line.
Schaber complained of head, neck and back pain, according to the sheriff’s department. She was transported to Memorial Hospital and Health Care Center where a hospital spokeswoman said she was treated and released.
First responders with the St. Henry Volunteer Fire Department, Memorial Hospital Emergency Medical Services and a KARS wrecker assisted.
Damage to the Cruze was estimated at $5,000.
