BIRDSEYE — An Orange County man’s truck sustained damage after encountering black ice Thursday morning at Birdseye.

Charles L. Cassidy, 56, West Baden Springs, was westbound on State Road 64 in a 2002 Ford F-150 when the 5:11 a.m. mishap occurred 600 feet east of Harts Gravel Road, according to the Dubois County Sheriff’s Department.

Cassidy’s truck spun after hitting black ice and struck a guardrail on the north side of the highway. The impact caused the truck’s air bags to deploy, according to the sheriff’s department.

Damage was estimated to have exceeded $5,000.
