Entry Description

Dubois County:  A two vehicle crash this afternoon shut down US 231 just south of Jasper.

Preliminary investigation reveals at approximately 1:30 p.m. Eric G. Williams, 38, Rhineland, MO had been traveling south on US 231 just south of SR 162, when he pulled his white, 2011 Chevrolet Silverado and flatbed trailer off onto the shoulder in order to wait for other vehicles he was traveling with. As the other vehicles caught up with him he began to turn his vehicle east across US 231 onto a gravel road.  As he began this turn he failed to see a gray, 1990 Ford Tempo, driven by Jennifer L. West, 56, St. Meinrad traveling south on US 231.  West’s Ford ran into the side of Rhineland’s vehicle.

Neither driver was injured however a front seat passenger in West’s vehicle complained of pain but refused medical treatment. 

Both vehicles received significant disabling damage and had to be towed from the scene.

Rhineland was cited for making an unsafe lane movement.

US 231 north and southbound lanes were closed for approximately 30 minutes while emergency crews cleaned up the scene.
