Truck-vs-motorcycle accident injures 1May 16, 2019
From Local Sources
IRELAND — A Pike County man suffered injury in a Saturday afternoon truck-versus-motorcycle accident on the Dubois County’s west side.
Jennifer L. Haag, 39, Jasper, was stationary in a 2016 Toyota Tacoma facing south at Old Petersburg Road’s intersection with State Road 56 at the time of the 3:03 p.m. accident, according to the Dubois County Sheriff’s Office.
Tracy L. Snow, 58, Velpen, was westbound on a 2008 Harley Davidson behind a slowing westbound vehicle that was turning north onto Old Petersburg Road.
Police said Snow went around the turning vehicle to continue westbound but Haag did not notice him. She pulled out onto the highway and the motorcycle ran into the Tacoma’s driver-side rear quarter panel.
The collision caused the motorcycle to flip and throw Snow off into the roadway. His injuries included a broken arm and road rash, according to the sheriff’s office.
Snow was transported by ambulance to Memorial Hospital and Health Care Center. A hospital spokeswoman said he was treated and released.
Snow and a witness — the turning driver he was passing at the time of the collision — both stated they did not believe Snow ever left his lane of travel, according to the sheriff’s office.
No citations were issued.
Total damage was estimated between $2,500 and $5,000.
A Uebelhor & Sons wrecker, an Indiana Department of Natural Resources conservation officer and the Ireland Volunteer Fire Department assisted.
