Two semis collide
Photo by Jason Snyder/The Daily Standard

One semitrailer stands along state Route 29 while another lays in the ditch following an accident at 2:10 p.m. Tuesday at the intersection of state Route 118 North, west of Celina. Larry J. Etgen, 53, of Van Wert, slowed his eastbound 1997 Kenworth in preparation for a left turn. Larry D. Jones, 54, of Elwood, Ind., failed to note the reduction in speed and struck the rear of the other rig with his 1999 Peterbilt. Etgen's rig ran off the right side of the road, struck a stop sign and rolled onto its side. The other truck came to a stop a short distance away. Jones was cited for an assured clear distance violation and both vehicles were towed from the scene.
