HAYSVILLE — A wrecker was needed after a single-vehicle mishap east of Haysville on Wednesday morning.

William J. Griffith, 41, Washington, was eastbound on State Road 56 in a 2006 Chevrolet Colorado when the 6:01 a.m. accident occurred 300 feet east of County Road 175E, according to the Dubois County Sheriff’s Office.

Griffith was exiting out of a curve when he lost control of the vehicle and the crew-cab Colorado ran off the north side of the highway, according to a deputy.

The truck ran over a rock culvert, struck a tree with its left front and stopped in a field.

Damage was estimated between $1,000 and $2,500.

A Uebelhor & Sons wrecker assisted.
