Indiana State Police say a semi driver was at fault in a four vehicle crash that injured four people in Dubois County.
Troopers say 37-year-old Jonathan Shealey of Evansville was headed north on US 231 on Thursday afternoon when his tractor trailer drifted over the center line and side-swiped a semi that was headed south.
21-year-old Knox Whitt of Attalla, Alabama tried to avoid Shealey's semi but a rear axle on his trailer was hit. Whitt was taken to Memorial Hospital in Jasper for treatment of a minor injury.
41-year-old Dionne Hanselman of Mariah Hill was behind Whitt's semi on southbound 231. Troopers say she tried to avoid the accident, drove through a ditch, and hit a utility pole head-on. Hanselman was not hurt.
Officials say a fourth vehicle, driven by 21-year-old Tiffany Vogler of Dupo, Illinois, was also hit head-on by Shealey's semi which was still traveling left of center.
Vogler had to be extricated from her car. She and two passengers were taken to Memorial Hospital with non-life threatening injuries.
Troopers say traffic charges are pending against Shealey for his involvement in the crash.
