SULLIVAN COUNTY, Ind. (March 9, 2016) – A 20-year-old Sullivan man survived after being ejected from his car during a crash Wednesday morning.
According to Indiana State Police, the two-vehicle crash happened around 6:30 a.m. in the northbound lanes of U.S. 41.
The initial investigation showed that a 2003 Chevrolet Malibu driven by Joshua Trueblood, 20, Shelburn, failed to slow down or pass a semi truck that had entered the northbound lanes of U.S. 41. The Malibu slammed into the back of the truck and rolled over; Trueblood was thrown from the vehicle.
Trueblood went to Terre Haute Regional Hospital for treatment of non-life-threatening injuries, including bruises and injuries to his hands. Police cited him for failing to wear a seatbelt and going too fast to avoid a collision.
