From Local Sources
HUNTINGBURG — Police busted the rear glass of a tipped truck to free a driver involved in an SUV-versus-pickup truck accident Tuesday afternoon at 10th and Jackson streets.
Donald R. Patberg, 80, Huntingburg, was northbound on Jackson Street in a 2011 Ford F-150 at the time of the 2:20 p.m. mishap, according to the Huntingburg Police Department.
Police said Patberg’s truck was turned over onto its driver’s side when it was struck by an eastbound 2005 Jeep Grand Cherokee driven by Louis A. Krohn Jr., 60, of Huntingburg.
Krohn was reported by police to have not stopped or slowed when he had come to the stop sign at the intersection.
Patberg was not injured but police had to bust his Ford’s rear window to get him out. The Patberg Ford sustained driver-side damage, minor passenger-side damage and had air bag deployment. Police estimated the damage between $4,000 and $5,000.
There was front-end damage estimated at $2,000 to the Krohn Jeep but he was not injured, police said.
An officer cited Krohn for disregarding a stop sign.
The Huntingburg Volunteer Fire Department, Memorial Hospital Emergency Medical Services and wreckers from KARS and Uebelhor & Sons assisted.
