LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) - A man was sent to the hospital Monday afternoon after his pickup truck rolled and landed on its side.
According to the Tippecanoe County Sheriff's Office, a man was driving a business vehicle sometime after noon Monday south on North Ninth Street in Lafayette when it crashed.
The truck, owned by Diamond Hardscapes, LLC, turned off to the right for an unknown reason. Sheriff's deputies say the truck hit an ornamental, 4,000-pound boulder on the side of the road, sending the vehicle flying off to the left.
Deputies say the truck rolled over. Our crew says the truck landed on its passenger side and appeared to have rolled ¾ of a full rotation.
The driver, identified as 44-year-old Vincent Coors, was sent to Franciscan St. Elizabeth East Hospital with minor injuries.
Diamond Hardscapes was contacted for comment. The company did not immediately return our calls.
