From Local Sources
JASPER — A Huntingburg teen suffered injury in a single-vehicle accident Wednesday evening south of Jasper in which icy conditions were a factor.
Daniel R. Berg, 16, Huntingburg, was eastbound on WITZ Road in a 2003 GMC Sierra when the 6:34 p.m. accident occurred east of U.S. 231, according to the Dubois County Sheriff’s Department.
Berg lost control of the truck on the icy roadway in a curve where the county road bends to the north.
A deputy said the truck went off the west side of the road and down a small embankment where it stopped after striking a tree.
Berg, who complained of face pain, was transported by ambulance for treatment at Memorial Hospital and Health Care Center. A hospital spokeswoman said he was treated and released.
The sheriff’s department said the truck was believed to be a total loss. It was towed from the scene by a Bob Luegers Motors wrecker.
Damage exceeded $5,000, according to the sheriff’s department.
