FERDINAND — One car was totaled and one driver was medically checked after a three-vehicle collision Thursday afternoon north of Ferdinand.
Courtney R. Esarey, 33, of 328 N. Louis J. Koch Blvd., Santa Claus, was southbound on State Road 162 in a 2005 Dodge Stratus when the 5:26 p.m. accident occurred in the 7700 block of the highway, according to the Ferdinand Police Department.
Police said Erwin J. Peters, 61, who was in front of Esarey, slowed to make a right turn into his 7785 State Road 162 driveway. As Esarey was stopping, her car was rear-ended by a 2012 Ford van driven by Michael L. Gudorf, 33, of 16855 N. State Road 545, St. Meinrad, according to police.
The impact sent Esarey’s car into the back of Peters’ truck.
Police said Esarey was taken by private vehicle to Memorial Hospital in Jasper after being checked at the scene by emergency medical technicians.
Authorities listed Esarey’s car as a total loss, while Gudorf’s van sustained $2,500 in damage. Peters’ truck was listed as receiving $1,000 in damage.
The Ferdinand Volunteer Fire Department and Memorial Hospital Emergency Medical Services assisted.
