The injured driver of the tanker truck that overturned Monday morning in Posey County is out of the hospital and back home with his family.
The driver of the tanker truck, 59-year-old John Schmitt, said that he feels perfectly fine. Schmitt does have stitches and some bruising, but no broken bones. Seeing pictures of the overturned tanker he was driving makes that all the more shocking.
Both John Schmitt and his son, Greg, have expressed how thankful they are to everyone who helped get him home safely, from the drivers who stopped, to the state police, and those in the emergency room. They say it's just another reason for the family to be thankful this holiday season.
