Tanker hauling egg yolks overturnsNovember 11, 2019
From Local Sources
HAYSVILLE — A Jasper trucker avoided serious injury when the tanker hauling egg yolks he was driving overturned late Sunday morning east of Haysville.
Michael L. Eck, 60, Jasper, was westbound on State Road 56 in a 2002 International semi when the 11:34 a.m. accident occurred 500 feet west of Kellerville Road, according to the Dubois County Sheriff’s Office.
Eck thought a gust of wind may have initially pushed his rig off the north side of the roadway but wasn’t sure, according to the sheriff’s office. A deputy said it appeared the semi came back onto the roadway, then exited on the south side of the highway, causing the tanker trailer to jackknife.
The tractor-trailer rig stopped facing eastbound in a ditch.
Eck exited the cab with minor injuries, according to the sheriff’s office. He was treated and released at Memorial Hospital and Health Care Center, according to a hospital spokeswoman.
Total damage was estimated between $10,000 and $25,000.
The Haysville Volunteer Fire Department, Indiana State Police, Memorial Hospital Emergency Medical Services and a Stork Service Center wrecker assisted.
