GUION -- Indiana State Police and Parke County emergency agencies Wednesday morning responded to a tractor-trailer rollover crash on State Road 236, approximately one mile west of State Road 59, in the northeastern part of Parke County.

Preliminary investigation of the single-vehicle 9:30 a.m. accident revealed that John P. Fagg, 46, of Brazil, was driving a 1997 Volvo tractor, pulling a trailer loaded with logs eastbound on SR 236 near Guion.

He was driving for Clausen Trucking of Greencastle, State Police reported.

As Fagg was entering a right curve in the roadway, he apparently lost control of the rig, traveled off the north edge of the roadway, and rolled onto the tractor's driver's side.

Fagg sustained minor lacerations and bruises. He was treated at the scene by Marshall Fire/Rescue and Parke County EMS personnel and released.
