By Herald Staff

HUNTINGBURG — A Friday evening fender bender at Main and Eighth streets resulted in a Huntingburg driver being cited because he does not have a license or vehicle insurance.

Milagro Reyes, 38, Huntingburg, stopped his 2008 Toyota on Main Street behind a 2019 Honda driven by Rebecca Gardner, 47, Lincoln City, who was waiting for the train to clear the tracks, Huntingburg Police said. After the train was gone, Reyes’ vehicle accelerated before Gardner’s, and rear-ended the Honda, police reported.

During the investigation, police discovered that Reyes has never had a driver’s license and did not have vehicle insurance. He was cited for operating a vehicle without a license, driving while suspended with a prior conviction and operating a vehicle without financial responsibility.

Reyes’ Toyota sustained less than $1,000 in damage to the front bumper; it was towed from the scene. Gardner’s Honda sustained less than $1,000 in damage.
