Dump trucks needed for box truck cleanupApril 10, 2019
From Local Sources
ST. HENRY — Members of the St. Henry Volunteer Fire Department and Dubois County Sheriff’s Office had a big cleanup to coordinate when a fully loaded box truck crashed and spilled its load Tuesday evening south of Huntingburg.
The 7:30 p.m. accident occurred along U.S. 231 one-eighth mile south of County Road 1000S, according to the fire department.
Firefighters said a large Penske Rentals box truck driven by Regina L. Roser, of Evansville, crashed and turned over on its side in the northbound lane of U.S. 231. The box trailer and its full load of salvaged home interior products and trash scattered on the highway and the roadside.
A Ruxer Ford wrecker retrieved the International truck chassis while Steckler Trenching brought a mini-excavator and a dump truck for the roadside cleanup. The work to remove and haul away the trash and household items also required a second dump truck from Luebbehusen Ag Repair.
St. Henry responded with 11 firefighters and two trucks. They were on the scene two and a half hours. The fire department thanked all those who helped and noted there was a lot of cooperation with the sheriff’s office and Dave Jacob of Ruxer’s wrecker service.
Memorial Hospital Emergency Medical Services also assisted.
