HAYSVILLE — A rural Huntingburg truck driver was entrapped Monday afternoon when the grain-hauling semi he was driving crashed onto its side in a curve east of Haysville.
Ronald R. Hasenour, 50, of 2678 E. 550S, was westbound on State Road 56 in a 2008 Sterling when the 1:15 p.m. accident occurred east of County Road 175E, according to the Dubois County Sheriff’s Department.
Deputies said Hasenour was traveling at a speed too fast to negotiate a curve. His load of turkey feed may have shifted, police said, causing the semi to turn over onto its side and slide partially off the south side of the highway.
The rig stopped, blocking the eastbound lane of State Road 56 and some of the trailer’s turkey feed was spilled. Hasenour’s arm was trapped and pinned by the cab of the semi, deputies said.
Units of the Haysville Volunteer Fire Department were able to extricate Hasenour, who was immediately taken to a waiting Lifeflight helicopter at the scene. He was flown to St. Mary’s Medical Center in Evansville to receive treatment for injuries to his left arm. Hasenour was reported to have later been released from the hospital.
Police said the accident that totaled the Sterling and blocked the highway is still under investigation.
Memorial Hospital Emergency Medical Services, wreckers from Ruxer Ford and Stork Service Center, Dubois County Communications and employees from Heeke Farms and J.F.S. Milling also assisted.
