Glare leads to SUV rolloverSeptember 24, 2019
From Local Sources
CELESTINE — Glare in an SUV’s passenger compartment reportedly led to a rollover accident Wednesday evening east of Celestine.
Carter L. Rayls, 17, Jasper, was westbound on State Road 164 in a 2002 Saturn Vue when the 6:03 p.m. accident occurred west of State Road 545, according to the Dubois County Sheriff’s Office.
Rayls reported reaching over to get rid of glare in the passenger-side of the vehicle and, when he looked up, he saw he was left of center.
A deputy said Rayls over-corrected, sending the SUV off the north side of the highway where it hit a ditch and went airborne. The Saturn struck a utility pole and stopped on its top.
Rayls, who was wearing a seat belt, escaped serious injury. A spokeswoman at Memorial Hospital and Health Care Center said Rayls was treated and released.
Total damage was estimated between $2,500 and $5,000.
Memorial Hospital Emergency Medical Services, the Celestine Volunteer Fire Department and a Sternberg Automotive Group wrecker assisted.
