GALVESTON, Ind. (AP) — State highway officials are going to study a rural highway ramp in northern Indiana that's been the site of three serious semitrailer crashes in the past three months.

The Howard County sheriff requested the review for the ramp where southbound traffic on U.S. 35 between Galveston and Kokomo has the option to stay on the highway or exit onto a county road. The Kokomo Tribune reports that in a September crash the trucker told police he wasn't sure which way to go when he reached the sudden left turn to stay on U.S. 35.

Another trucker, 29-year-old Zackariah Anderson of Rushville, died in an August crash at the intersection.

State highway department spokesman Scott Manning says a traffic study will be completed to see whether changes will be recommended.
