Fender-bender recorded in business’ driveway

From Local Sources

FERDINAND — Total damage reached $4,600 in a pickup-truck-versus-passenger car fender-bender Wednesday in a Ferdinand business’ driveway.

Kerstie L. Trimmell, 29, Huntingburg, was approaching a stop sign near Kentucky Street on Best Home Furnishings’ privately-owned driveway on West 16th Street at the time of the 11:35 a.m. mishap, according to the Ferdinand Police Department.

Trimmell was slowing her 2008 Chevrolet Cobalt when it was rear-ended by a 1997 Ford F-150 driven by Isaac R. Smith, 23, Cannelton, according to police.

A Ferdinand officer reported that Smith did not realize Trimmell was attempting to stop.

No citations were issued, but Smith was faulted for following too closely.

Damage was estimated at $4,500 to the Trimmell Cobalt and $100 to the Smith truck.
