CELESTINE — A motorist was placed into custody after a single-vehicle accident Sunday evening east of Celestine.

Garrett B. Robinson, 43, 288 N. 1025E, Celestine, was driving a 2015 Chevrolet Silverado on State Road 164 near State Road 545 when he reported encountering a patch of ice on the highway while entering a curve, according to the Dubois County Sheriff’s Department.

Robinson’s truck left the roadway, struck a fence and stopped in a field in the 8900 block of State Road 164.
