Truck-vs-pole crash brings ticketsFebruary 11, 2020
From Local Sources
HUNTINGBURG — A pickup truck-versus-telephone pole accident Friday morning resulted in damage and the driver getting tickets.
Oscar Dubon, 35, Huntingburg, was northbound on County Road 400W in a 2000 Toyota Tundra when the 6:15 a.m. accident occurred 500 feet south of Phoenix Drive, according to the Dubois County Sheriff’s Office.
A deputy said Dubon’s truck slid off the west side of the road. It struck a Frontier Communications telephone pole and stopped in a ditch.
The sheriff’s office said Dubon took the license plate off the truck and left the scene. He returned later but the license plate he brought returned to a vehicle he had previously owned, the sheriff’s office alleged.
An investigation also established the truck had not been covered by insurance at the time of the wreck, according to the sheriff’s office.
Total damage was estimated between $2,500 and $5,000.
A deputy cited Dubon for no proof of insurance and false or fictitious plate.
