Officer Brent Lewis with the Harrison County Sheriff’s Dept. gathers information following a semitractor-trailer rollover last Wednesday just before 1 p.m. along S.R. 11 near Baptist Church Road. According to a crash report, the rollover occurred due to the driver, Joseph N. Shaw, 44, of Holland, who was unimpaired, overcorrecting on a curve and driving at an unsafe speed. A gouge was made in the highway as the truck overturned, and an Elizabeth Water Co. hydrant was hit and later repaired. A large amount of diesel fuel soaked into the homeowner’s yard. Shaw, who was wearing a seat belt, was transported to Baptist Health Floyd in New Albany due to complaint of pain to his chest area. Photo by Joey Bowling
