A Churubusco man suffered several fractures Tuesday when his dump truck blew a tire on Indiana 3 and rolled over, trapping him, Noble County emergency workers said today.
Daryl Erwin, 59, of Journey Trucking was taken by helicopter to Parkview Hospital in Fort Wayne, the responders said in a statement.
It said Erwin was driving on Indiana 3, north of Indiana 205, about 2:50 p.m. Tuesday when he passed a vehicle and his right front tire blew. The truck went west, off the roadway, and rolled onto its driver's-side door, trapping Erwin.
Erwin was removed from the vehicle by the LaOtto Fire Department, the statement said. Noble County EMS and the Avilla and Kendallville fire departments assisted.
