Unhitched Trailer Results in Accident/Injury

The Dubois County Sheriff's Department says a trailer that came unhitched from a truck on State Road 56 Thursday afternoon caused an accident that injured one person.

Authorities say Alberto Barrios of Otwell was eastbound when his small trailer came unhitched.

A westbound semi tractor trailer driven by Thomas Linley of Brilliant, Alabama hit the trailer, ran off the road and struck an embankment.

Linley was taken to Jasper Memorial Hospital for treatment of possible leg injuries.

Barrios was cited for not having his trailer registered and a safety chain violation.
