HAYSVILLE — A phone company’s pole and a property owner’s landscaping were in harm’s way when a semi exiting a sharp curve ran off State Road 56 east of Haysville Friday morning.
Paul D. Eicher, 34, Colon, Michigan, was westbound on State Road 56 in a 2007 Kenworth owned by Kalmbach Trucking, Upper Sandusky, Ohio, when the 8:46 a.m. accident occurred 250 feet east of Kellerville Road, according to the Dubois County Sheriff’s Office.
A deputy said Eicher lost control of the truck exiting the curve, sending the rig off the roadway in a northwesterly direction. The Kenworth struck a Frontier pole before taking out several trees and spilling fuel on the Denise Palmer property at 1015 E. State Road 56, according to the sheriff’s office.
Eicher did not require medical treatment, according to authorities.
A Stork Service Center wrecker, The Haysville Volunteer Fire Department and Indiana Department of Environmental Management assisted.
Total damage was estimated between $5,000 and $10,000.
