LOWELL, Ind. (AP)
-- Authorities say firefighters had to use chain saws to get to a driver
whose semi-truck went off a road and into a wooded area in northwest
The crash happened
Saturday night along Interstate 65 near Lowell.
Police say the truck hauling airline snacks ended up about 300 feet (91.5
meters) into the woods. Police say rescuers werenít immediately able to get
to the truck because of the trees. The driver refused medical treatment
after being rescued.
Police say the
55-year-old driver told them he crashed after swerving to avoid a car that
cut him off. Troopers say, however, that they didnít find any evidence of
sudden action by the truck driver. Instead, police say a gradual path was
found leading from the roadway.
