9:21 a.m. — Tony R. Armes, 44, Logan, Ill., was driving south on SR 257 in a 2012 Peterbilt semi pulling a hopper-type trailer when, as he entered a curve to the left just south of CR 400S, the trailer began sliding to the driver’s side and crossed the center line.

 He tried to correct the rig, which is registered to Commercial Transport Inc., Belleville, Ill., by steering to the right. But the trailer continued to slide, causing the tractor to overturn on the driver’s side. The vehicle slid off the roadway to the south, coming to rest with the trailer off the road and the cab on the highway.

The complaint reported the road was very slick and INDOT was notified. They advised to call IDEM, which recommended lightly sanding the road where there was a spill. The highway was closed until mid- to late afternoon.

Armes complained of pain to his arm, and the accident report listed his injury as a possible fracture or dislocation.

Damage was estimated between $50,000 and $100,000.

Damage was estimated between $1,000 and $2,500. INDOT was notified about the sign.


4:31 p.m. — Angela K. Gray, 29, 203 S.E. 11th St., was southbound on CR 100W in a 1995 Ford Explorer registered to her and Michael Cook, Wheatland. Gray stated she was adjusting the radio and when she looked up, she noticed she was driving off the roadway. The Ford went off the east side and Gray overcorrected, driving off the west side of the road. She then drove into a harvested cornfield and the vehicle rolled over several times before coming to rest on its wheels facing southwest.

Gray exited the vehicle and began to feel neck pain. She was transported by ambulance to Daviess Community Hospital ER.

Damage was estimated between $5,000 and $10,000.
