Verbal warning follows Holland-area mishap

From Local Sources

HOLLAND — Both vehicles were towed after a two-vehicle collision Monday afternoon south of Holland.

Audrey L. Fleck, 28, Holland, was exiting a driveway on County Road 1025S just west of State Road 161 in a 2018 Nissan Altima at the time of the 3:09 p.m. mishap, according to the Dubois County Sheriff’s Office.

A deputy said Fleck failed to yield to a westbound 2017 Chevrolet TrailBlazer driven by Sarah M. Schmitt, 41, Holland, and the Nissan struck the passenger side of the Chrevrolet.

Fleck told the deputy she attempted to stop but the car slid on the gravel driveway rock.

The Nissan was towed at Enterprise Rental’s request due to Fleck allegedly not being an authorized driver on the rental agreement, according to the sheriff’s office. Schmitt’s Chevrolet was towed due to damage.

Total damage was estimated between $1,000 and $2,500.

A Uebelhor & Sons wrecker assisted.

The deputy reported giving Fleck a verbal warning for failing to yield the right of way.
