Entry Description

Gibson County – Monday morning, February 13, at approximately 6:45, Indiana State Police responded to a crash at S.R. 68 and I-69 that injured a Haubstadt truck driver and totaled both trucks.

Preliminary investigation revealed Lucas Wellmeyer, 29, of Winslow, was driving a 2007 Ford F750 truck westbound on S.R. 68 when he turned left to exit onto I-69 south and pulled into the path of an eastbound 2012 Peterbilt dump truck.  Both vehicles collided and came to a final rest in the eastbound lane.  The driver of the dump truck, William Tenbarge, 62, of Haubstadt, was taken to St. Mary’s Hospital where he is currently being treated for minor injuries. Wellmeyer was not injured and was cited for failure to yield.  Both drivers were wearing their seat belts.
