Indiana man discovered 6 hours after crash

DEARBORN COUNTY, IN (FOX19) -

Authorities say a Brookville man, who swerved to avoid deer in the road and lost control of his van on Friday morning, wasn't located by state troopers until six hours later.

Joseph Gallenstein, 52, was driving to work on I-74 when he swerved to avoid two deer in the road. As a result, he lost control of his van and went over an embankment.

It wasn't until almost 1 p.m. that a state trooper responded to a report of a crash on the eastbound side of I-74, near the 165 mile marker in Dearborn County.

According to a police report, Gallenstein's van was located some 200 yards down a ravine, with a tree that had fallen onto the vehicle.

Crews had to cut and remove the fallen tree before Gallenstein could be taken out of his van. He was transported to University Hospital with non life-threatening injuries.

An EMT on the scene believed Gallenstein may have been unconscious for a period of time.
