IRELAND — Vehicle occupants were checked by emergency medical services after a dump-truck-versus-Jeep collision Wednesday afternoon west of Ireland.
The 12:43 p.m. accident on State Road 56 at County Road 800W occurred when the driver of a 1996 International dump truck failed to see an eastbound Jeep on the highway, according to Indiana State Police.
As the International entered the roadway, police said, it struck the right front quarter panel of the Jeep.
The Jeep’s two occupants and the dump truck’s driver were uninjured; however, police said, they were checked by EMS. The identities were not immediately available.
The highway was closed for about an hour as the scene was cleared and some spilled vehicle fluids were cleaned from the roadway.
The Dubois County Sheriff’s Office, Ireland Volunteer Fire Department and Memorial Hospital Emergency Medical Services assisted.
