Entry Description

Vermillion County—At 9:00 this morning, Indiana State Police Commercial Vehicle Enforcement Trooper Brent Hoover stopped a 2009 International box truck on southbound State Road 63 at County Road 1050 South for a routine food transportation safety inspection. Trooper Hoover found the truck’s refrigerator unit had been shut off and the temperature of the 20,700 eggs varied from 58 to 59.9 degrees. Under Indiana law, the eggs are required to be no warmer than 41 degrees during transport. The Vermillion County Health Department was contacted and health officer Larry Beard Sr. went to the scene and ordered the cargo destroyed. The eggs were off loaded and destroyed at a local Vermillion County landfill.

The driver of the truck, Victor L. Yagle, age 46, of Rossburg, Ohio was cited by Trooper Hoover for Violation of Indiana Food Transportation Law and released. The load from Weaver Brothers Inc. of Versailes, Ohio was bound for a food distribution company in Terre Haute, Indiana.

Under the law, criminal charges are merely accusations and the defendant is presumed innocent unless and until proven guilty.
