Three people were injured Wednesday in a one vehicle crash on U.S. 50 in Jennings County.
Indiana State Police report that shortly after 12:30 p.m., a box truck, driven by 40-year-old Charles Manson of Indianapolis, was eastbound on U.S. 50 near County Road 650 West when the truck's passenger side wheels briefly left the roadway. Police say that Manson over corrected, causing the truck to travel back across the roadway where it overturned and slid into a fence at an auto parts store on the north side of U.S. 50.
Manson and two passengers, 25-year-old Deverrick A. Harrison and 43-year-old Terry Parker, also of Indianapolis, were trapped in the vehicle and had to be extricated. All three were transported to St. Vincent Jennings Hospital in North Vernon for non-life threatening injuries. Harrison was later transferred to a hospital in Indianapolis for treatment on his seriously injured leg.
State Police investigators say that the wet roadway may have contributed to the crash. The investigation is ongoing and Manson was cited for driving while suspended.
