From Local Sources

HAYSVILLE — The Dubois County Sheriff’s Department is seeking an arrest warrant for the driver of a pickup truck who fled from authorities after crashing west of Haysville on Sunday afternoon.

The crash occurred a mile west of Haysville on Haysville Road West at 1:02 p.m.

The sheriff’s department says a yellow Ford Ranger was eastbound on Haysville Road West when, for an unknown reason, the truck went left of center and off the north side of the road. The Ranger lost its tire and flipped, stopping on its side, police said.

Deputies arrived to find a male with a cut to his head who said he had been the driver. Police told the man, who was believed to have been ejected, to walk over to another vehicle at the scene.

Deputies say the man ran from the scene into the woods on the south side of the road.

The sheriff’s department, with the assistance of Indiana State Police, Department of Natural Resources conservation officers, the Huntingburg Police Department, the Martin County Sheriff’s Department, and three K-9 units searched the area for about two and a half hours.

Police said the man who fled is from Daviess County and was believed to be seeking assistance from friends to leave the area.

The sheriff’s department is not releasing the individual’s name until a warrant is issued for his arrest.

The crash totaled the truck.
