After the initial impact the 2003 Chevrolet Impala went off the east side of the road and rolled over several times ejecting the driver.
Timothy Thomas was transported to Memorial Hospital by helicopter for head injuries sustained in the crash. The driver of the 2006 International flatbed was Robert Landis of Argos. He was not injured in the crash.
