ST. ANTHONY — Both drivers were injured in a pickup truck-versus-car accident this morning at State Road 64 and South Street in St. Anthony.
Charles Harkness, 66, of Eckerty was westbound on State Road 64 in a 2004 Ford Taurus at the time of the 5:52 a.m. accident, according to the Dubois County Sheriff’s Department.
Deputies said a 1996 Dodge Ram 2500 series pickup truck pulled into the intersection from South Street on the north side of the highway. The front center of Harkness’ car struck the driver’s door area of the truck driven by Stanley Stetter, 57, of 4347 S. 700E, deputies said.
Harkness was transported by ambulance to Memorial Hospital for treatment of chest and neck pain, according to authorities. A hospital spokeswoman said he was treated and released. Stetter was taken to the hospital by personal vehicle for treatment of a head injury, police said.
Both vehicles were totaled.
The roadway was blocked for about 35 minutes while the scene was cleared.
Police cited Stetter for failing to yield the right of way.
A Hasenour Motors wrecker, Memorial Hospital Emergency Medical Services and the St. Anthony Volunteer Fire Department assisted.
