Elderly Man’s Utility Vehicle Struck By Car That Fled Scene; Was Later Located

St. Anthony (NNDC) – A 77-year old rural Dubois County man was injured when the ATV he was driving was struck by a passing car along St. Anthony Road West Saturday morning.

The Dubois County Sheriff’s Department says Wilfred Buechler was driving south on St. Anthony Road West shortly after 10 o’clock when he attempted to turn into a private drive on his farm.  Buechler told DCSD his ATV was then struck on its driver’s side by a car.  DCSD says impact was made in a no-passing zone.

DCSD says Buechler was thrown from his vehicle onto his driveway.  He suffered abrasions and bruises to the left side of his body.

DCSD says the car did not stop after it made contact with Buechler’s ATV and fled the scene.

DCSD says the car was later located but no other  information about it or its driver has been released.
