Start Date: 3/25/2014Start Time: 12:00 AM
End Date: 3/25/2014
Entry Description
Putnam County—This morning around 9:33, Indiana State Police Master Trooper Jason Schoffstall was patrolling Interstate 70 in Putnam County and came upon a two-vehicle crash near the 41 mile marker. Schoffstall radioed for medical and fire/rescue assistance and began administering first-aid.

Preliminary investigation revealed a 2007 Chevrolet van driven by 55-year-old Scott A. Dixon of Terre Haute, IN. was eastbound on I-70 and crossing a small bridge when he lost control of his vehicle, apparently from ice on the bridge. The van traveled through the median and struck the trailer of a westbound tractor-trailer. The tractor was a 1989 International pulling an empty box trailer and driven by 65-year-old Darrell E. Smith of Salem, Illinois. The tractor-trailer was owned by Foster Salvage of Salem, Illinois.

Scott Dixon suffered head, chest, internal, and upper extremity injuries. Dixon was extricated from the vehicle by members of the Cloverdale Fire/Rescue and transported to Terre Haute Regional Hospital by Putnam County Operation Life EMS. Dixon’s injuries are serious and he is expected to be transferred by to Methodist Hospital in Indianapolis.

There were no cable barriers at the crash location and drugs and alcohol do not appear to be factors.

The crash was investigated by M/Trooper Jason Schoffstall. Assisting were ISP Senior Trooper Chris Harcourt, Putnam County Sheriff’s Office, Putnam County Operation Life, Cloverdale Police Department, and Cloverdale Fire/Rescue.
