From local sources
HUNTINGBURG — Police have yet to publicly identify two teenage girls struck by a car Friday evening at Sixth and Main streets.
Chad Goodall, 28, of Evansville had turned northbound onto Main Street from Sixth Street when the 6 p.m. accident involving the girls and his Dodge Stratus occurred, according to the Huntingburg Police Department.
As Goodall approached the Subway restaurant entrance, police said, a 14-year-old Holland girl and a 17-year-old Huntingburg girl ran between stopped traffic and into Goodall’s lane.
Police said Goodall did not see the girls until they were in front of him. He applied his brakes but did not have time to stop his car before it struck the girls.
Authorities said the victims were coming from the CVS Pharmacy on the west side of Main Street and were attempting to cross heavy traffic to get to the east side of the street. They failed to see the traffic moving in Goodall’s lane, according to police.
The girls were transported by ambulance to Memorial Hospital with possible head injuries, according to police. One was later transferred by LifeFlight helicopter to an Evansville hospital, an officer who had no further information on the victims’ conditions said today.
Goodall and a passenger, 28-year-old Brandon Bullock of Huntingburg, were not injured. The Dodge was not damaged.
The Huntingburg Volunteer Fire Department and Memorial Hospital Emergency Medical Services assisted.
