From Local Sources

CELESTINE — A street sign post was bent when it was struck by a trailer involved in a turning maneuver Sunday in Celestine.

David E. Fox, 33, Jasper, was westbound on State Road 164 in a 2009 Chevrolet Silverado pulling a trailer when the 3:30 p.m. mishap occurred at New Orleans Street, according to the Dubois County Sheriff’s Office.

Fox attempted a left turn onto New Orleans Street but turned too short, sending his trailer into one of two posts holding a sign that denotes Dubois is 5 miles to the north.

Total damage to the trailer and the “Dubois 5” sign was estimated at less than $1,000.
