From Local Sources
HUNTINGBURG — Police say one of the vehicles involved in a Saturday afternoon mishap was sold on the spot.
Brenda S. Hartke of Huntingburg was eastbound on First Street in a 2011 Toyota Camry when the 1:39 p.m. accident occurred at the Washington Street intersection, according to the Huntingburg Police Department.
Police said Hartke attempted a left turn to go north on Washington Street but she turned too sharply and her car struck a south-facing 1994 Jeep Wrangler owned and operated by Randy K. Englert of Ferdinand. Hartke did not see the Englert Jeep before the turn, police said.
The Hartke Camry struck the front driver’s-side corner of the Jeep and also damaged its driver’s-side front wheel, tire and axel. In addition, police added, the Jeep also had undercarriage damage involving its drive shaft, transmission parts and rear axle. The Jeep also had a flat passenger-side rear tire.
Police estimated the Jeep was a total loss. Englert sold the vehicle at the scene to a neighbor in the 700 block of First Street, police said, while adding the Jeep was towed to that new home.
Hartke’s Camry sustained front bumper, grille and radiator damage estimated at $5,000. Police said it was towed by a Uebelhor & Sons wrecker.
There were no injuries and no citations issued.
