Two pickup trucks collided Tuesday afternoon in Gibson County, sending one driver to the hospital. The sheriff’s department tells us it happened around 1 p.m. on State Road 64 near 850 East in the Francisco area.
Deputies say 55-year-old Peter A. Stewart was attempting to turn his company truck around in a no passing zone and failed to see another driver coming over the hill.
Stewart’s truck was struck by the other driver, who wasn’t identified by the sheriff’s department. That driver was taken to Deaconess in Evansville for injuries to his neck and shoulder.
