One sent to the hospital after a crash involving a dump truck

DEARBORN COUNTY, IN (FOX19) -

A crash, involving a dump truck, sends one person to the hospital.

The dump truck, driven by 54-year-old Michael Waters of Williamsburg, Ohio, was heading eastbound on 1-74 around 5:45 p.m. when another car merged on to I-74 from exit 169.

Waters told police that the merging car cut him off causing him to slam on the breaks which caused him to lose control of the dump truck.

The dump truck then crashed into the median and then overturned, trapping Waters inside.

Harrison Fire Department were able to free Waters. He was taken to University Hospital with non-life threatening injuries.

The other car has not been identified or located. The crash remains under investigation.
