Entry Description

Vigo County—This afternoon at 4:16, Indiana State Police troopers and Vigo County emergency agencies responded to a rear-end collision in the eastbound lanes of Interstate 70 near the 10 mile marker. The crash involved two commercial vehicles and only minor injuries to one driver.

Preliminary investigation by ISP Trooper Brian Thomas revealed a blue 2006 Freightliner tractor pulling a box trailer loaded with wheat and driven by 33-year-old Adis Kusur of London, Ontario, Canada, failed to slow for traffic entering a construction zone and struck another tractor-trailer in the rear. The second tractor, a white 2005 Freightliner, was pulling a box trailer loaded with scrap rubber and driven by Raymond L. Riner, age 64, of Ardmore, Oklahoma.

Kusur was hauling for Elgin and Challenger Motor Freight. Riner was hauling for Carrell Trucking of Ardmore, Oklahoma.

Kusur was briefly trapped in the vehicle and with the help of Terre Haute Fire Department Station 9 and Station 5 personnel, was able to exit under his own power. Kusur was slightly injured, but signed a medical release.

ISP Commercial Vehicle Enforcement Senior Trooper Byron Goodman cited Adis Kusur for Failure to Reduce Speed to Avoid Collision. ISP CMV Master Trooper Matt Ames placed the Riner vehicle out of service at a nearby truck stop for damage incurred in the crash.

Assisting were multiple ISP units, Vigo County Sheriff’s Office, Terre Haute Fire Department, and the Indiana Department of Transportation.

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