A two-vehicle accident occurred Thursday afternoon on Manhattan Road leaving one man being sent to Putnam County Hospital.

The Greencastle Police Department responded to the call at 4:05 p.m.

Investigating officer Darrel Bunten stated that Donnie Trumbo, Greencastle, was driving northbound in his 2007 GMC Sierra truck as Tina Catt, Brazil, was driving Southbound in her 2007 Toyota FJ Cruiser.

As the two approached the railroad tracks, just outside of the Phoenix Closures plant, there was a small curve in the road.

"There's a small curve in the road," said Bunten. "Donnie doesn't remember anything except hitting something."

Trumbo left the roadway stopping a few feet before the railroad tracks on the west side of the road.

Trumbo was transported via Operation Life to Putnam County Hospital complaining of left shoulder pain.

Catt sustained no injuries.

Damage is estimated between $5,000-$10,000 for both vehicles.

Trumbo's truck is also said to be totaled. Bunten was not certain about the status of Catt's Toyota at the time.

Following the wreck, the driver of the 2007 Toyota FJ Cruiser, Tina Catt, did not sustain any injuries.

Responding to the wreck was Greencastle Police Chief Tom Sutherlin, officer Kyle Lee and Bunten. Also at the scene were Putnam County Sheriff's Department, Operation Life and the Greencastle Fire Department.
