RICHLAND TOWNSHIP — An Indiana man suffered what were described as non-life threatening injures when his semi tractor-trailer overturned early Tuesday in eastern Allen County.
According to a report from the Lima post of the Ohio State Highway Patrol, James Lundquist, 63, of Griffith, Indiana, was operating his Freightliner tract0r-trailer rig westbound on U.S. 30, east of Interstate 75, at 1:45 a.m. when he failed to negotiate a curve in the roadway. The truck left the pavement and then overturned, blocking the westbound lanes of U.S. 30 for several hours, the report said.
Lundquist was transported by Beaverdam-Richland EMS to Lima Memorial Health System with unspecified injuries.
Troopers were assisted at the scene by Beaverdam-Richland Fire and EMS, Allen County Emergency Management Agency officials, Ohio Department of Transportation, the Ohio Environmental Protection Agency and Miller’s Auto Towing.
Lundquist was wearing his seat belt at the time of the crash, limiting his injuries. The crash remains under investigation.
