State Police Seeking Public’s Help with Crash Investigation

(Huntington County, IN)-The Indiana State Police in Fort Wayne is seeking the public’s help in trying to locate the owner of a spare tire which came dislodged from its trailer on Saturday afternoon and struck a semi-tractor in the windshield causing serious injury to its driver.

An investigation conducted by Trooper Michael Hollandsworth indicated this past Saturday at approximately 2:40 p.m., a 2000 Mack semi-tractor was traveling northbound on I-69 near the 292 mile marker when a spare tire commonly used by enclosed trailers came across the median from the southbound side and struck the semi-tractor’s windshield.  The tire then entered the cab, struck the driver and ended up on the passenger side

The driver of the semi, 58 year old John A. Green of Zionsville, Indiana suffered serious injuries and was transported to Lutheran Hospital via ambulance.  Assisting at the scene were the Huntington County Sheriff Department, Markle Fire Department and Huntington County EMA.

Hollandsworth is asking for anyone that may have witnessed the crash or has any information to contact him at the Indiana State Police Post at either (260) 432-8661 or (800) 552-0976 (Indiana only).
