Motorist locks brakes, crashes in Dubois area

From Local Sources

DUBOIS — No injuries were reported after a single-vehicle crash early Sunday along a county road southeast of Dubois.

Nicholas R. Burgen, 19, French Lick, was driving southeast on County Road 760E in a 1999 Chevrolet pickup truck when the 1:26 a.m. accident occurred west of County Road 330N, according to the Dubois County Sheriff’s Office.

Burgen locked his truck’s brakes coming into a curve, which resulted in the truck going off the south side of the roadway and stopping after tipping on its side.

Damage was estimated between $2,500 and $5,000.

A Uebelhor & Sons wrecker assisted.
