Rain, tree factor into Ferdinand mishap

From Local Sources

FERDINAND — No injuries were reported after a truck-versus-SUV collision Monday night on Sixth Street near Delaware Street.

Todd A. May, 46, Ferdinand, was backing his 2018 Dodge Ram 1500 from a private drive in the 500 block of East Sixth Street at the time of the 8:24 p.m. mishap, according to the Ferdinand Police Department.

Police said May backed into the path of a westbound 2012 Buick Enclave driven by Karen Bonger, 57, of Newburgh.

May told police he did not see the Bonger Buick because of rain and a tree just east of his position blocking his view.

The back bumper of the Dodge struck the passenger-side front fender and side of Bonger’s Buick, which was towed from the scene by a Berg’s Garage wrecker.

Damage was estimated at $6,000 to the Enclave and $1,000 to the May truck.

There were no injuries and no citations were issued.
