From Local Sources
MALTERSVILLE — No injuries were reported after a Pike County woman’s truck found a Maltersville ditch Friday evening.
Rhonda Groeinger, 51, Otwell, was driving south of Jasper in a 2003 Chevrolet Silverado when the 6:44 p.m. mishap occurred on County Road 230S 500 feet east of State Road 162, according to the Dubois County Sheriff’s Department.
Groeinger was attempting a three-point turn on the county road at what she thought was an access point at a field, according to the sheriff’s department.
While attempting to turn around, a deputy said, Groeinger missed the access point and backed her truck over a culvert.
The Silverado dropped into a ditch and stopped on its undercarriage with its front tires completely off the ground.
The sheriff’s department said it required two tow trucks to get the truck out of the ditch.
Damage was estimated at between $1,000 and $2,500.
Uebelhor & Sons’ wreckers assisted.
