Police investigate leaving-the-scene accident

From Local Sources

HUNTINGBURG — Police have yet to identify the driver in a leaving-the-scene accident last week north of Huntingburg.

The accident along U.S. 231 was reported at 3 a.m. Tuesday, April 7, north of Phoenix Drive, according to the Dubois County Sheriff’s Office.

A deputy said a southbound 2014 Dodge pickup truck veered off the west side of the highway and struck a concrete culvert.

The collision totaled the truck that was registered to a Jasper resident but the person driving had left the scene upon officers’ arrival, according to the sheriff’s office.

The Huntingburg Police Department and a Uebelhor & Sons wrecker assisted.

The investigation is continuing.
