According to an Indiana State PoliceMaster Trooper Gary Wier, James A. Love, 39, Jeffersonville was driving a yellow, 2004, Freightliner semi tractor trailer eastbound on US 50 near Deep Cut Lake Road

The investigation revealed that Love drove his Freightliner left of center and sideswiped a white 2010, Ford INDOT truck driven by Michael W. Deller, 49, Dale.

After sideswiping the INDOT truck the Freightliner left the north edge of the roadway, rolled over, and lost its contents (auto parts) all over US 50.

US 50 was completely closed for 1.5 hours and then restricted to one lane until 7 p.m. when the scene was completely cleaned up.

Neither driver was injured in the crash.

The yellow Freightliner was totaled in the crash. The INDOT had damage to the left side but was drivable.
