Rain, tree factor into Ferdinand mishapAugust 1, 2019
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.
