Petit Jean truck crashes

A Petit Jean Electric truck was totaled in an accident Monday, June 17. Driver Tom Henderson of Clinton told police he had been working through the night and dozed off while he was driving on Highway 65. The truck left the roadway just before Highway 16 West and rolled about 205 feet through the grass on the shoulder, the report said. The truck struck a yield sign on Highway 16 West and continued to roll another 68 feet across the highway before becoming airborne for about 40 feet as it entered a deep ditch and struck the ground, the report said. Henderson and passenger Josh Baker did not suffer any serious injuries, according to the report by Clinton Police Officer Eric Koonce.
