Entry Description
Jasper County-Yesterday, Monday, April 7, 2014, while traveling on I-65 north bound at the 226.7 mile marker (this is approximately three miles south of the Demotte/Roselawn exit) Johnny D. Turner, 36 of Huber Heights, Ohio called for help as he was having trouble breathing.

Turner was driving a 2010 Freightliner semi pulling a box trailer owned by Liberty Transportation out of Greensburg, Pennsylvania, loaded with auto parts. Paramedics and Trooper Jason Madison arrived and Turner was given medical attention at the scene. Further investigation determined that Turner was allegedly under the influence of a narcotic drug. A field test was conducted on a substance in Turner’s possession that tested positive for cocaine.

Turner was taken to Jasper County Hospital in Rensselaer for treatment. He was cited for Operating with a Controlled Substance, Possession of Cocaine and Possession of Paraphernalia.

Commercial Vehicle Enforcement Division Senior Trooper Dale Turner completed an inspection on the driver and the semi. Johnny Turner was placed out of service for being under the influence, possession of drugs, paraphernalia, log book violations and several equipment violations.

The semi and its load were released to another driver from Liberty Transportation.
