From Local Sources
IRELAND — Speed was a factor in a car-versus-pole accident that police worked on the west end of the county the night of Monday, Nov. 25.
Kathleen M. Hanebutt, 17, Velpen, was northbound entering a curve on Old Petersburg Road in a 1997 Chevrolet Malibu when the 9:08 p.m. accident occurred 500 feet north of State Road 56, according to the Dubois County Sheriff’s Office.
Hanebutt told a deputy she was traveling too fast when her car went over a curb and into a ditch, striking a telephone pole.
Damage was estimated between $2,500 and $5,000.
A Uebelhor & Sons wrecker towed the car for disabling damage, according to the sheriff’s office.
