* Dec. 1 -- Police responded to the scene of an accident at 7:58 a.m. which occurred at the intersection of State Road 54/59 and Marshall Ave. on the west side of Linton. Billie Wilkins, 56, Linton, was westbound on the highway in a silver 2006 Ford F-350 truck and Ryan Littlejohn, 16, Linton, was eastbound on Marshall Ave. approaching the highway. The police report states Littlejohn did not see Wilkins and pulled into his path, striking the Wilkins vehicle on the driver's side front quarter and tire area. The impact of the crash sent Littlejohn's vehicle into the lot of the Country Porch gas station and sent Wilkins's vehicle off the east side of the roadway. The report notes the windows of Littlejohn's vehicle were almost completely frosted over causing an obstruction. The primary cause of the accident was listed as Littlejohn's failure to yield. Contributing circumstances included Littlejohn's obstructed view and driver distraction. Damage was estimated between $10,000-25,000. Seatbelts were in use in both vehicles and no injuries were reported. LPD Officer Karl Jacobshagen was the investigating officer.
