Gary L. Beavers, 70, Hillsboro, backed his 2018 Ford F-150 out of his driveway at 4 p.m. Feb. 14 and into a 1998 Ford Expedition improperly stopped facing the wrong direction across the street.
Owner Andrew L. Lindsay of Hillsboro said he had stopped his sport utility vehicle in front of mailboxes and left the vehicle to check his mail.
Beavers’s pickup sustained what was characterized as minor damage to its right rear. Lindsay’s SUV sustained what was characterized as more extensive damage to its passenger side door but remained drivable.
Assistant chief Randall Brazil’s report blamed the accident on inattentive driving by Beavers, but no tickets were issued.
