From Local Sources
BIRDSEYE — Police say speed and rain were factors in a Wednesday accident south of Birdseye.
Leah M. Mundy, 19, Birdseye, was southbound on State Road 145 in a 2008 Ford Mustang when the 9:30 a.m. accident occurred at Anderson Valley Road, according to the Dubois County Sheriff’s Office.
A deputy who reported Mundy was driving too fast for the wet road conditions said her car went left of center off the east side of the roadway in a curve and struck a tree. The car spun and stopped facing northeast.
The curve is marked by arrow curve signs and a posted 35 mph speed limit.
Damage was estimated between $2,500 and $5,000.
A Berg’s Garage wrecker assisted.
