[ISP] Overturned Tanker Closes SR 62 for Four Hours

Entry Description

Warrick County – Monday, April 1, at approximately 8:47 a.m., Indiana State Police responded to a single vehicle crash that closed S.R. 62 between Dale and Gentryville for four hours.

Preliminary investigation revealed Larry Colter, 55, of Tennyson, was driving a 1986 Ford tanker truck southbound on SR 62 approximately two miles south of Dale when the vehicle’s right tires left the roadway on the west side. Colter attempted to get the vehicle back onto the roadway, but he overcorrected causing the vehicle to roll onto its side. The tanker continued to slide left of center and came to a final rest off the roadway on the east side. The crash caused the tanker to leak approximately 2,000 gallons of liquid fertilizer. Colter, who was wearing his seat belt, received a minor head injury and was taken to Jasper Memorial Hospital where he was treated and released. Colter is employed by Superior Ag Resources in Huntingburg. SR 62 was closed for four hours while crews used a vacuum to remove the liquid fertilizer from the ditch. Colter was cited for speed too fast to avoid a collision. His vehicle was totaled. The investigation is continuing.

Investigating Officer: Master Trooper Bob Helfrich, Indiana State Police

All criminal defendants are to be presumed innocent until, and unless proven guilty beyond a reasonable doubt in a court of law.
