Sheriff’s Department

Putnam County sheriff’s deputies investigated two recent property-damage crashes.

• At 3:51 p.m. on Monday, Timothy Parrish, 30, Cloverdale, was traveling westbound in a 1992 Ford F-Series on County Road 900 South. Anthony Hofmann, 60, Cloverdale, was traveling eastbound in a 2009 Dodge Ram.

Parrish told Deputy Tanner Brown that he and Hofmann got as far over on the road as they could, before both of their driver’s-side mirrors made contact with each other. Parrish then pulled over.

Hofmann told Brown that he saw Parrish’s vehicle at least 18 inches over from the side of the road. He confirmed that both his and Brown’s driver’s-side then made contact, and that his mirror turned inward and struck the driver’s-side window.

No injuries were reported by both parties.

Brown estimated damages between $1,001-$2,500.

• At 6:37 a.m. on Tuesday, Kent Slaughter, 32, West Chester, Ohio, was traveling from U.S. 231 onto an alley on the south side of the United States Postal Service building in Cloverdale in a 2015 Freightliner truck.

Slaughter told Deputy Tann Brown that he thought he had turned wide enough to make the right turn, but that the passenger-side rear of the vehicle struck the end of a handrail on the building. He then parked at the loading dock and waited for law enforcement.

Slaughter reported no injuries.

Brown estimated damages between $1,001-$2,500.
