Ferdinand police work truck-vs-car collisionOctober 10, 2018
From Local Sources
FERDINAND — Both vehicles were able to be driven from the scene of a Thursday morning pickup truck-versus-passenger car colllision on Ferdinand’s west side.
Benjaman L. Killman, 31, Herrin, Illinois, was southbound on Industrial Park Road in a 2016 Ford F-150 when the 6:15 a.m. mishap occurred at West Ninth Street, according to the Ferdinand Police Department.
Killman slowed for traffic turning onto Ninth Street and, when he did, his truck was rear-ended by a 2014 Chrysler 300 driven by Vicente A. Hernandez, 25, Jasper, police said.
Both drivers were wearing seat belts and did not have any obvious injuries police said.
Damage was estimated at $1,000 to each of the vehicles.
An officer cited Hernandez for following too closely.
Ferdinand police said motorists should make it a habit to give other drivers more room than they need — at least one car length for every 10 mph being traveled.
