HUNTINGBURG — Both vehicles were totaled and both drivers complained of injury after a passenger-car-versus-SUV collision Wednesday afternoon in Huntingburg.
Donnie Wagner, 41, Huntingburg, had been eastbound on 17th Street in a 1990 Oldsmobile Cutlass when the 3:35 p.m. accident occurred at U.S. 231, according to the Huntingburg Police Department.
Wagner attempted to turn north on U.S. 231, but police said his view was obstructed by a semi tractor and trailer at the location because of a traffic backup resulting from a train across U.S. 231.
Police said Wagner pulled into the intersection without seeing a northbound 2016 Toyota RAV4 driven by Kay Peake, 75, Holland.
The Peake Toyota struck the passenger-side doors of the Wagner Oldsmobile.
Both drivers were checked at the scene by Memorial Hospital Emergency Medical Services, police said. Wagner was then transported by ambulance to Memorial Hospital and Health Care Center while Peake was taken to the hospital by personal vehicle.
Seat belts worn by both drivers were believed to have lessened the extent of the injuries. A hospital spokeswoman said both drivers were treated and released.
The Huntingburg Volunteer Fire Department and KARS and Uebelhor & Sons wreckers also assisted.
