Unreasonable speed factors into curve accidentMay 24, 2019
From Local Sources
HAYSVILLE — Police said unreasonable speed was one of the factors in a Thursday morning accident east of Haysville.
Sonny J. White, 22, Celestine, was eastbound on State Road 56 in a 1998 Dodge Ram 1500 series pickup truck when the 8:30 a.m. accident occurred east of County Road 175E, in Sendelweck Curve, according to the Dubois County Sheriff’s Office.
The sheriff’s office said White was traveling at an unreasonable speed for the wet roadway conditions when his truck entered the curve and struck an embankment off the south side of the highway.
The impact caused the Dodge to spin along the embankment before stopping partially in the highway’s eastbound lane facing southeast.
White was treated at the scene by Haysville Volunteer Fire Department first responders and a Memorial Hospital Emergency Medical Services ambulance crew, according to the sheriff’s office.
The accident totaled the truck.
A Sternberg Automotive Group wrecker also assisted.
