HUNTINGBURG — A Huntingburg accident left a driver with rib and neck pain on Thursday morning.

David A. Porter, Huntingburg, was eastbound on State Road 64 in a 2007 Ford Mustang when the 6:30 a.m. accident occurred at the intersection of State Road 64 and Styline Drive, according to the Huntingburg Police Department.

A press release states that at the same time, Nathaniel L. Parks, Huntingburg, was traveling westbound on State Road 64 in a 2004 Chevrolet. While both vehicles came to the intersection, the Porter Ford turned north and crossed the westbound lane, causing the Parks Chevrolet to strike the passenger side of the Porter Ford.

The impact pushed the Porter Ford 50 yards west of the intersection, causing the Parks Chevrolet to slide over an embankment and flip onto its side.

Porter complained of right rib and left neck pain and was transported by EMS to Memorial Hospital and Health Care Center with minor injuries.

Damage to the Porter Ford was estimated at $5,000. Damage to the Parks Chevrolet was estimated at $20,000. HPD was assisted by Sternberg's Wrecker Service, Memorial EMS and the Huntingburg Volunteer Fire Department.
