According to a Union County Sheriff report, Lee D. Oestreichaer, 69, of Massachusetts, driving a 2013 Toyota north on Quail Avenue, decided to turn around. Oestreichaer slowed down, came to a stop and decided to back up into a field drive. He got out and checked to make sure he could back into the drive. Oestreichaer, unfamiliar with the rented vehicle, failed to put the car in park, and when he got out of the vehicle, it rolled forward into the east ditch. David Frank Phillips, 69, of California was a passenger in the vehicle. Phillips was transported to Greater Regional Medical Center by ambulance, where his condition is unknown.
Damage estimate is $2,500 to Oestreichaer’s vehicle.
