Sheriff's Department

* On Thursday, Dec. 1 at 10:30 a.m. Larry Rogers, 66, Jamestown, was westbound on U.S. 40 in a 2009 Freightliner semi when he began sneezing uncontrollably. At this time, his semi left the north side of the westbound lane and was pulled into the ditch by the soft shoulder, striking an embankment as well as a mailbox.

Rogers was able to regain control of the vehicle and drive it back onto the roadway.

Several inches of rain had fallen in the days leading up to the accident, contributing to the soft shoulder that caused the mishap.

Chandler did not see Goss's vehicle and pulled in front of her, causing a collision.

Damage $10,001-$25,000.
