A Fulton County Sheriff's Department deputy was involved in a crash Wednesday.
Just before 9:00 pm Wednesday, Fulton County Deputy Mitch Scott was responding to a accident on US 31. As the deputy was approaching US 31 from West 6th in his Dodge Durango, the Durango slid through the intersection due to the snowing conditions at the time, and struck the rear semi-trailer of a northbound Freightliner. The Freightliner, pulling two pup trailers, overturned after being struck. The semi and first trailer ended up in the ditch. Deputy Scott’s vehicle ended up in the ditch with air bag deployment.
Deputy Scott was transported to Woodlawn Hospital with complaints of shoulder pain. The semi driver was uninjured.
US 31 was closed between West 6th and West 3rd street for several hours for clean-up.
Assisting on scene was the Fulton County Sheriffs Office, Rochester Police, Indiana State Police, Rochester Fire, Lutheran EMS, Fulton County EMA, Wilson’s Tow and Transport along with Reichert & Knepp Wrecker Service.
