BARTHOLOMEW COUNTY, Ind. — A dump truck crashed into the side of a 100-year-old farm house in Bartholomew County on Tuesday.

Around 11 a.m. on June 11, Bartholomew County sheriff’s deputies responded to a call at the 10700 block of E. 450 N. after a single-axle dump truck owned by Edge Construction ran off the road and struck the house.

A 27-year-old male driver received minor injuries when his truck left the roadway for an unknown reason, according to police.

Columbus Township Fire and Clifford Fire Departments are attempting to stabilize the home’s foundation while county inspectors are assessing the damage with the County Highway Department.

According to police, traffic is down to one lane on 450 N. and will continue to be down to one lane as the investigation continues.
