A semi-tractor trailer blocked both lanes of Ind. 240 Friday morning east of CR 500 East. Sgt. Don Pettit of the sheriff’s department reported that Michael R. France Mahoney was driving west in a 2000 Freightliner semi when he experienced severe crosswinds from a passing semi. The wind caused the trailer to travel off the north side of the road and into a ditch. The trailer struck a power pole and damaged the road. Damage was estimated at $5,000-$10,000.
