From Local Sources
FERDINAND — A sleepy driver avoided injury in a mishap early Sunday on Ferdinand’s north side.
Kale S. Burke, 18, Jasper, told the Ferdinand Police Department at 12:48 a.m. that he had fallen asleep while driving a 2000 Chevrolet northbound in the 2400 block of Main Street.
Police said the Burke Chevrolet drove off the roadway in a ditch and went partially up the embankment at the location of the town’s new veterans memorial on the east side of Main Street/State Road 162.
There was no damage to the vehicle and no injuries. Damage to the right of way was estimated between $1,000 and $2,500.
Burke told police he returned and reported the incident because he did not want to be charged with leaving the scene of a property damage accident.
