Investigators report that at approximately 8:30 A.M., Robert C. Dayson, 51, Evansville, was eastbound on New Harmony Road and attempted to travel east across State Road 61. As Dayson was crossing in a 2007 Dodge Durango, he failed to see a southbound 2007 Freightliner dump truck, driven by 68 year old William L. Holloway of Monroe City. Dayson’s Dodge was struck in the driver’s door by Holloway’s Freightliner, pushing both vehicles almost 150 feet and off of the east side of the roadway.
Dayson and Holloway were transported to St. Mary’s Hospital in Evansville. Dayson is listed in critical condition; Holloway suffered non-life threatening injuries.
Troopers were assisted by the Warrick County Sheriff’s Department, Boonville Fire Department, and St. Mary’s Warrick EMS.
