HAYSVILLE — Fatigue was cited as a factor in a passenger car-versus-SUV collision Monday evening at Haysville.
Clay C. Peacock, 24, Holland, was southbound on U.S. 231 in a 2007 Toyota Camry when the 6:16 p.m. mishap occurred at West Haysville Road, according to the Dubois County Sheriff’s Department.
Police said Peacock fell asleep at the wheel and awoke just as his Camry was striking the vehicle in front of it, a 2014 Ford Explorer driven by Beverly K. Christley, 68, Crane.
Christley had slowed to turn eastbound on West Haysville Road and had her left turn indicator activated at the time of the collision, according to the sheriff’s department.
After the collision, a deputy said, Christley drove onto the south shoulder of West Haysville Road to wait for police.
Emergency medical services were not needed at the scene. Police said both drivers were wearing seat belts.
Total damage was estimated between $5,000 and $10,000. A deputy said an airbag in the Peacock Camry deployed.
