From Local Sources
JASPER — Two wreckers were needed after an SUV-versus-pickup truck collision Friday afternoon at Sixth and Dorbett streets.
Timothy Walker, 63, Petersburg, was westbound on Sixth Street in a 1999 Ford F-250 when the 4:46 p.m. mishap occurred at the top of the Y, according to the Jasper Police Department.
Police said Jennifer Lueken, 30, Ferdinand, exited a private lot west of Dorbett Street in a 2019 Buick Enclave and had started driving eastbound on Sixth Street.
Walker said the Lueken Buick then attempted to make a left turn to go north on Dorbett Street; however, he said, there was no room for her to turn.
Police said Walker swerved but his truck and the Lueken SUV collided in the intersection.
Lueken stated she saw several vehicles go through the intersection ahead of Walker’s truck and she felt there was enough room to make her turn, police said.
No injuries were reported but damage was estimated at $7,000 to the Walker truck and $5,000 to the Lueken SUV.
Wreckers from Ruxer Ford and Uebelhor & Sons assisted.
No citations were issued.
