Slick conditions lead to mishap

From Local Sources

HUNTINGBURG — Slick roadway conditions Friday night led to a collision involving two SUVs north of Huntingburg.

Ashley J. Sharp, 33, Huntingburg, was southbound on U.S. 231 in a 2008 Ford Edge when the 10:16 p.m. mishap occurred north of Phoenix Drive, according to the Dubois County Sheriff’s Department.

Sharp was slowing for another vehicle that had gone sideways in the roadway in front of her because of snowy conditions when her Ford was struck in the rear by a 2014 Chevrolet Equinox driven by Jeremy A. Steinhart, 29, Jasper.

Steinhart was unable to stop in time given the driving conditions and the right front of his Equinox struck the left rear of the Edge, according to the sheriff’s department.

Damage was estimated between $1,000 and $2,500 but both vehicles were able to be driven from the scene.
