Truck; Camper Crash On Highway

KSAL Staff - June 7, 2015 2:25 pm

Emergency responders work the crash scene

Two people escaped serious injury Sunday morning when a pickup truck they were traveling in, and the camper it was towing, crashed.

The crash happened at around 9:30 Sunday morning, in Ottawa County South of Bennington, on Old Highway 81. Officials told KSAL News that the crash blocked the highway for at least an hour.

A witness told KSAL News that shortly before the crash the trailer started swaying.  The driver of the truck lost control, and both the truck and camper flipped onto their side, blocking the highway.

There were two people in the truck, a father and his adult daughter, returning from a camping trip at the Ottawa State Fishing lake. Neither was seriously hurt.
