Accident reports

Van backs into truck

A backing van hit a parked truck in Pellville. The accident happened on July 26 at roughly 4:45 p.m. Hancock County Sheriff Dale Bozarth filed the accident report.

Rebecca Crockett, of Pellville, backed her 2010 Chrysler Town and Country van from an address at 10 Baker Street in Pellville, and backed into a 2002 Toyota Tacoma pickup truck parked in the drive at 15 Baker Street. Crockett said she exited her vehicle, looked at the vehicles but did not think she damaged the truck, so she left the scene and drove home.

A witness to the accident told the owner of the truck, William Cheek, about the van backing into his truck. He notified law enforcement for a report.

Cheek’s truck sustained minor to moderate damage. Crocket’s van sustained minor damage. Neither required a tow.

Scooter turns into car

A man riding a moped suffered injuries when he turned his scooter into the side of a passing vehicle. The accident happened approximately one-half mile east of Lewisport on River Road. The accident happened on July 25 at approximately 5 p.m. Hancock County Sheriff Dale Bozarth filed the report.

According to Bozarth’s report, David Kerr of Hawesville was riding a 2006 moped east on River Road when he pulled his moped into the west bound lane of River Road to make a right hand turn into a driveway. Kerr said he did not know a vehicle was behind him.

Danielle Bumm, of Hawesville, said as she drove east on River Road in her 2005 Toyota Camry, she came upon the moped. Bumm said the moped slowed and pulled over into the west bound lane, and she thought he was letting her pass, so she went to drive past him. As she did, Kerr turned his moped to the right, into the side of her vehicle. Bumm said she did not see Kerr signal.

Hancock County EMS arrived on scene to provide first aid to Kerr. Hancock County EMS later transported him to Owensboro Health Regional Hospital for additional treatment.

Bumm’s Camry sustained minor to moderate damage. Kerr’s moped sustained minor damage. Neither required a tow.
