Semi, Dump Truck Collide, Shut Down Road In Greene County

Last updated on Tuesday, May 5, 2009

(WORTHINGTON) - Two Jasonville truck drivers are hurt after their rigs collided on IN-67 near Worthington yesterday.

The Greene County Daily World reports 36-year-old William Nickelson was either slowing or stopped for a stop sign southbound on IN-67 in his semi when his trailer was struck from behind by a dump truck driven by 42-year-old Craig Hudson.

Police had to close down the roadway for around two hours to clean up not only the trucks but also some of the rock load the dump truck was carrying.

Hudson was cited for speeding to fast to avoid a collision and both were taken to Greene County General Hospital as a precautionary measure as both complained of chest pain.
