Couple survives coal truck encounter
LYNNVILLE — Indiana State Police say a couple walking along southwestern Indiana highway avoided life-threatening injuries when a truck overturned and spilled coal.

Police say coal from the trailer struck Phyllis Claridge and the impact swept her off her feet and under a metal fence along the highway. Her husband was able to pull her out and walk her to a neighbor's house.
She was airlifted to Deaconess Hospital in Evansville and treated for non-life threatening injuries.
