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 75-year-old Jerry Claridge and 74-year-old Phyllis Claridge of Lynnville were walking along Indiana 61 near the Pike/Warrick county line Thursday morning when the truck entered the curve and its load shifted, sending the vehicle onto its side.

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.
