From Local Sources
CUZCO — Police say alcohol may have been a factor in a Thursday night single-vehicle rollover crash near Cuzco.
On Thursday night around 8:44 p.m., Dubois County deputies were dispatched to State Road 56 just west of Cuzco Road North in reference to an accident with injury.
When deputies arrived, they observed a 2003 Subaru Passenger car inverted off the south side of the highway in a ditch.
The driver, 38-year-old Kaleb Connell of Shoals, was outside of the vehicle when deputies arrived on scene.
Police say Kaleb advised that he was westbound on State Road 56 and swerved to miss a deer.
Kaleb's vehicle spun 180 degrees, traveled off the south side of the roadway striking a utility pole, state highway signs, and some corn in field before coming to rest on its top.
Police say they believe Kaleb was ejected from the vehicle during the crash.
Kaleb was transported from the scene by ambulance to Memorial Hospital to treat multiple injuries.
Police say the vehicle was a total loss.
Deputies were assisted on scene by Indiana State Police, Dubois Volunteer Fire Department, Memorial Hospital EMS, and Uebelhor and Sons Wrecker.
Police note that the accident is still under investigation, however alcohol is believed to be a factor and charges may be filed at a later date.
