A driver was killed in a truck accident on Tuesday when two semitrailers collided at U.S. 31 and Indiana 28, according to Tipton County Sheriff deputies.
A truck, driven by Bill Maseman, 38, of South Carolina, was transporting milk products from the Anderson Nestle Plant, heading west on Ind. 28, when he allegedly entered the intersection at the same time as a truck carrying drywall.
The westbound truck ran head-on into the flatbed of the northbound truck, destroying the cab of the westbound truck and killing Maseman, said deputies.
Both northbound and southbound lanes of U.S. 31 were closed down for more than six hours.
The driver of the northbound truck and his passenger were not injured in the crash.
Maseman drove for Continental Express of Sidney, Ohio, which is a contractor for Nestlé, according to Pam Krebs, spokeswoman for Nestlé in Anderson.
