From local sources
FERDINAND — A motorist, whose car ended up in a ditch on Ferdinand’s south side Monday morning, claimed an oncoming pickup truck’s driving lights were a factor in the accident.
Charles R. Harkness, 69, Eckerty, was southbound on Industrial Park Road in a 2003 Ford Taurus when the 5:57 a.m. mishap occurred near a parking lot entrance to MasterBrand Cabinets, 624 W. Third St., according to the Ferdinand Police Department.
Harkness, who intended to make a left turn into the lot, advised he was run off the road by a large pickup truck that had three sets of driving lights, police said. Harkness said he was blinded by the oncoming lights and missed his turn.
The Taurus stopped in a ditch on the south side of the MasterBrand entrance.
There were no citations and no injuries.
The Ferdinand Police Department would like to identify the pickup truck’s driver. Anyone who could provide information is asked to contact police by calling county dispatch at 812-482-9111.
