Man cited for failure to secure trailer after accident damages home

ANDERSON — A man was hospitalized with minor injuries on Thursday after a trailer detached from a truck and slammed through a house wall.

The accident happened at about 10:30 a.m. at the home of Joe Rose in the 200 block of East 31st Street. Rose was sitting in the home near the south wall of the house when the accident happened. The impact of trailer into the home forced a sudden reaction from Rose, who injured his neck due to the reactionary movement.

According to Anderson police spokesman Joel Sandefur, Rose was taken to St. Vincent Regional Hospital to be treated for the minor injury, and no one else was hurt.

Sandefur said the accident happened when a 1999 Ford Expedition truck driven by 29-year-old Stephen Demarco of Anderson lost control of a trailer it was hauling. Demarco told police he was headed east on 31st Street and about to cross the intersection of Central Avenue when his vehicle struck a bump in the road.

The impact unhitched the trailer from the back of the truck and sent it rolling into the westbound lane and into a yard. The trailer hit a 2000 Pontiac Grand Prix parked in the driveway, then continued onto the porch and through the wall of the home.

According to Sandefur, Demarco was citing for failing to secure the trailer, which had no chains or restraints keeping it attached to the truck.
