7:23 a.m. — David J. Dunn, 29, Fleming Island, Fla., was driving east on SR 58, near CR 800E, when he noticed two deer in the road.

7:53 a.m. — Marilyn D. McCullough, 67, 410 NE Third St., was northbound on CR 350E in her 1996 Chevrolet Lumina when, according to a witness, she disregarded the stop sign at the intersection with CR 100N. Edward L. McCammon, 58, Linton, was passing through the intersection on CR 100N in a 2012 Freightliner with a dump-type trailer, registered to Elmer Bucha Trucking, Otwell, and McCullough struck the semi’s rear axles on the driver’s side.

McCammon had the right of way. McCullough stated she didn’t see the truck, but saw another truck coming from the south. She said she slowed but didn’t come to a complete stop at the stop sign before proceeding through the intersection.

McCullough was treated at the scene for minor bleeding to her head. Damage was estimated between $10,000 and $25,000.

Graber pulled out to cross the highway and pulled into Noble’s path. Noble was unable to avoid a collision and struck the passenger side of Graber’s vehicle. Both vehicles spun and came to rest on the south side of the intersection, with Noble’s facing west and Graber’s facing east.

Noble was trapped in the Cavalier and suffered injuries to her leg and foot. Damage was estimated between $5,000 and $10,000.
