Sunday

5:30 a.m. — Wayne A. Young, 46, Loogootee, was eastbound in his 2000 Buick Century on SR 58 east of Odon when he traveled onto the south shoulder where there was a buildup of gravel that had been ground off due to resurfacing. Young over-corrected and swerved across the opposite lane of traffic, spinning out of control. He traveled off the north side of the road and collided with a ditch embankment near CR 1200E, causing the Buick to overturn. It came to rest on the passenger side facing west, with Young trapped in his seat belt.

The other driver, Rickie A. Smith, 56, Odon, said he was southbound in his 1993 Jeep Grand Cherokee and saw a vehicle coming toward him that appeared to be in his lane of travel. Smith stated he kept trying to get farther over on his side of the road and almost came to a stop.

The Wagler vehicle struck the Smith vehicle head on. Smith was transported to Daviess Community Hospital for chest and knee pain. A 13-year-old passenger in the Wagler vehicle, Nathaniel Wagler, complained of mouth and nose pain and also was transported to DCH. Damage was estimated between $5,000 and $10,000.

Doscher was waiting for oncoming traffic to pass so he could turn left onto Industrial Park Road, and Mandabach didn’t notice he was turning. Mandabach attempted to drive into the westbound lane to avoid hitting the Doscher vehicle, then stopped in the eastbound lane. He struck the driver’s side rear of the Doscher vehicle damaging it and causing damage from front bumper to back on the passenger side of his own vehicle. Damage was estimated between $2,500 and $5,000.
