Sleepy driver sideswipes oncoming pickupDecember 12, 2017
By BILL POWELL
JASPER — Fatigue was a factor in a Monday afternoon sideswipe crash involving two pickup trucks between Jasper and Haysville.
Mark L. Bailey, 51, Bloomfield, was southbound on U.S. 231 in a 2008 Ford F-250 when the 4:25 p.m. crash occurred 1,000 feet north of Old Road 45, according to the Dubois County Sheriff’s Department.
Bailey nodded off behind the wheel and his truck traveled over the centerline and sideswiped a northbound 2016 Chevrolet Silverado driven by Steven L. Arvin, 56, of Loogootee, according to the sheriff’s department.
After the collision, a deputy said, Bailey’s truck stopped off the west side of the highway facing south and Arvin’s Chevrolet stopped off the east side of U.S. 231 facing north.
Damage was estimated at $5,000 to each truck but only Arvin’s vehicle was drivable after the accident, according to the sheriff’s department. A Uebelhor & Sons wrecker towed the Bailey Ford from the scene.
There were no injuries and no citations issued.
