From Local Sources
HUNTINGBURG — A semi that left the highway south of Huntingburg Monday evening took down a sign and communication lines while leaving ruts in its wake.
Jeffery H. Sisk, 55, Huntingburg, was southbound on U.S. 231 in a 2017 International semi tractor-trailer owned by Meyer Logistics, Jasper, when the 7:05 p.m. accident occurred at County Road 900S, according to the Dubois County Sheriff’s Department.
Sisk told a deputy he reached for a pack of gum, causing the rig to go off the west side of the roadway at County Road 900S. The truck struck an Indiana Department of Transportation sign and a City of Huntingburg pole, taking down Frontier Communication lines and causing property damage in the 3100 block of County Road 900s, according to the sheriff’s department.
A Stork Service Center wrecker towed the semi.
There were no injuries. The sheriff’s department estimated damage between $2,500 and $5,000.
The St. Henry Volunteer Fire Department also assisted.
