DEKALB COUNTY, IN – The driver of an asphalt has been hospitalized after his truck overturned.
According to the DeKalb County Sheriff’s Department the truck, loaded with roughly 15,000 pounds of asphalt material, overturned two times in the 4600 block of County Road 56 on Wednesday morning. The truck was reportedly traveling west when it ran off the roadway.
Witnesses told investigators the truck then re-entered the roadway on an uneven surface. This corrective action and the uneven surface conditions caused the truck to overturn at least two times.
Reports indicate the truck came to a rest upright in a field just off the roadway. The driver, 24-year-old Ian Hirschy, was taken to a hospital with head and abdomen injuries.
The DeKalb County Sheriff’s Department was assisted by Parkers Towing Service, Parkview EMS, and the Auburn, Jackson and Concord Township fire departments.
