Branch hanging from semi damages car

No one suffered injury in an accident on state Route 144, eight miles east of Hawesville on October 26. The accident happened at 6 a.m. and Hancock County Sheriff’s Deputy BJ Burton filed the accident report.

Corey A. Wagner of Winamac, Ind. was driving a 2008 Freightliner east on state Route 144 and somehow a tree branch lodged to the back of his semi as he traveled.  Kenneth L. Eskridge of Hardinsburg, Ky was driving west in a 2008 Chevrolet Impala, and struck the tree branch hanging from the back of the semi as the vehicles passed.

The semi did not sustain damage. Eskridge’s Impala sustained minor to moderate damage. Neither vehicle required a tow.
