[ISP] Too Light Pick-Up Causes Trailer to Flip
Start Date: 5/20/2014Start Time: 12:00 AM
End Date: 5/20/2014
Entry Description

Lake County-Trying to pull a loaded trailer with a pick-up that was too light caused the driver to lose control and flip the trailer.

Preliminary investigation by Sergeant Lee Wright revealed that at approximately 7:53 a.m., this Tuesday, May 20, 2014, Jaime Enriquez, 32 of Chicago, driving a 2001 Dodge Dakota pick-up, was pulling a twenty foot trailer loaded with two scissor jacks north bound on I-65 between U.S. 30 and 61st Avenue when he over steered. This caused Enriquez vehicle to jack-knife, slide off the roadway, hit a guard rail then flip the loaded trailer.

Enriquez had just picked the trailer up at a rental company in Merrillville; the rental agreement stipulated that it must be pulled by a much heavier vehicle than the Dodge Dakota pick-up he was driving.

Enriquez was not injured. The right lane was closed for 45 minutes to up-right the trailer and scissor jacks. The Dodge Dakota stayed up-right.

Enriquez was cited for Unsafe Vehicle Operation.
