From Local Sources

FERDINAND — One vehicle needed a tow after a car-versus-pickup truck collision Monday evening in a Ferdinand store’s parking lot.

Bonnie S. Cook, 42, Marengo, was pulling her 2014 Dodge Avenger into a parking spot at the Dollar General at 1801 State Road 162 at the time of the 6:57 p.m. mishap, according to the Ferdinand Police Department.

Police said Cook did not notice that Amber D. Williams, 40, Shoals, had just exited her parked 2014 Chevrolet Silverado 2500 series truck.

The Cook Dodge struck the Williams Chevrolet in the driver’s door, police said.

Cook was able to drive from the scene with about $2,500 damage to her car’s right fender area. Police said the Williams truck required a tow because its door would no longer close and latch. Damage to the Silverado was estimated at $7,500.

There were no injuries and no citations were issued.
