I-64 Accident Near Dale Slows Tuesday Rush Hour

An accident near the Dale exit off of Interstate 64 in northern Spencer County left one person injured.

Spencer County Sheriff’s deputies say a tractor trailer was eastbound along I-64 at the 57B mile marker near the Dale exit at about 4 pm yesterday afternoon when the truck’s driver started to feel sick. Deputies say the driver then overcorrected his truck after it started to veer, causing the truck to tip over onto its side and blocking the eastbound lanes of I-64.

The driver of the semi, whose name has not been released, was treated at a regional hospital for non-life threatening injuries. Interstate 64 near the Dale exit at U.S. 231 was blocked for about 2 to 3 hours while the scene was being cleaned up.

The Dale Police Department, the Santa Claus Police Department, the Gentryville Police Department, and Indiana State Police all assisted at the scene.
