Pickup towed after collision with deerJune 26, 2019
From Local Sources
IRELAND — A Pike County man’s pickup truck sustained significant damage when it struck a deer Thursday morning just west of Ireland.
Jamison H. Clark, 46, Otwell, was eastbound on State Road 56 in a 1999 Ford Ranger when the 5:48 a.m. accident occurred 300 feet west of County Road 550W, according to the Dubois County Sheriff’s Office.
A deputy said Clark’s truck collided with a buck that came onto the highway from the south.
The buck was killed in the collision and damage to Clark’s truck was estimated at about $4,000, according to the sheriff’s office.
A Ruxer Ford wrecker towed the truck for disabling damage.
The sheriff’s office is reporting an increasing number of vehicle-versus-deer collisions as the animals are on the move because of floodwaters.
