DEARBORN COUNTY, IN (FOX19) -

Three people were injured after a crash involving a semi and an Indiana Department of Transportation mowing crew. 

It happened on US 50, in front of the Aurora Casket Company, around 12 p.m.

According to Indiana State Police, the preliminary investigation shows an INDOT tractor pulling a bush hog, being driven by 22-year-old Justin White of Dillsboro, IN, was traveling westbound in the right lane of US 50 near Marsh Road in Dearborn County. 

The tractor was being followed by a 2015 Ford INDOT pickup truck being driven by 34-year-old Kyle McIntosh of Versailles, IN. 

A westbound semi-tractor, being driven by 47-year-old Tony Littleton of Milan, IN, approached the other two vehicles from the rear. For an unknown reason, Littleton’s vehicle did not slow or change lanes for the slower INDOT vehicles.

Littleton’s vehicle struck the rear of McIntosh’s vehicle which then pushed it into the tractor White was operating. 

All three vehicles slid off the north side of the roadway causing McIntosh’s pickup truck to overturn. 

Both McIntosh and Littleton were flown to University of Cincinnati Hospital with serious injuries that do not appear to be life threatening. White was transported by ambulance to Dearborn County Hospital for treatment of unknown injuries.

It is unknown if drugs or alcohol played a role in the crash. Toxicology results are pending at this time. 

The investigation is ongoing.
