From Local Sources
HUNTINGBURG — A trailer hauling a tractor rolled off a roadway in a Friday evening mishap near the Huntingburg Conservation Club.
Matthew P. Pflug, 24, Princeton, was southbound on County Road 100W in a 1988 Ford F-350 when the 6:10 p.m. accident occurred north of County Road 925S, according to the Dubois County Sheriff’s Office.
A deputy said Pflug’s truck was pulling a trailer hauling a 2017 Red Mahindra tractor with a scoop bucket when the accident occurred near a hillcrest by the conservation club.
As the Ford climbed the hill, according to the sheriff’s office, the vehicle ran out of power and the trailer with its cargo began to slide backward. A deputy said the back end of the trailer ran off the roadway and rolled, with its gooseneck hitch coming loose from the truck.
Total damage was estimated between $10,000 and $25,000.
A KARS wrecker assisted.
