From local sources
MALTERSVILLE — A St. Anthony man was serious injured Sunday afternoon after crashing his truck on a county road east of Maltersville.
The Dubois County Sheriff’s Department received a call about a truck overturned in a ditch on St. Anthony Road just south of Schnellville Road at 12:56 p.m. The driver, 48-year-old Hugh M. Miller, of 4094 S. Santine Road, had been pulled out of the wrecked 2000 Ford Ranger pickup truck by a passerby who had stopped, according to the sheriff’s department.
Miller was transported by ambulance to Memorial Hospital in Jasper and then flown by LifeFlight helicopter to St. Mary’s Medical Center in Evansville.
Deputies said an investigation determined Miller had been northbound on St. Anthony Road North when, for an unknown reason, his truck ran off the east side of the roadway, then slid back across the road. The truck went down an embankment and stopped on its top in a ditch with shallow water.
The Celestine and St. Anthony volunteer fire departments, an Indiana conservation officer, Memorial Hospital Emergency Medical Services and a Uebelhor & Sons wrecker assisted.
The sheriff’s department said the accident remains under investigation.
