Shortly after 8 a.m. Tuesday, Dubois County Sheriff’s deputies responded to the scene of a single vehicle, personal injury accident on Portersville Road, just south of 500 North.

Deputies arrived on scene to find a 1990 Chevy Kodiak partially in the roadway, on its wheels. The Chevy Kodiak was driven by Nelson Hoffman, 83, of Jasper.

Hoffman was traveling south on Portersville Road just south of 500 North when for an unknown reason, Hoffman traveled off the right side of the roadway. Hoffman then overcorrected, went left of center and overcorrected again, causing the truck to overturn, losing a load of corn.

The Chevy came to rest on its wheels, facing west.

The Dubois County Sheriff’s Office was assisted by Memorial Hospital EMS and Haysville first responders.

No other details are being released at this time.
