A semi driver was cited for driving too fast and passing violations after he crashed into a home Friday morning in Wayne County in eastern Indiana.
Indiana State Police say Makhmud Amanov, 27, of Corona, New York, was driving northbound on US 35 north of Economy when he lost control in a curve, ran off the road, overcorrected to the left and flipped the semi trailer onto its side.
The impact sent the front of the cab into a nearby home, where a mother and child were inside. They were not hurt. Neither was the driver, but he was taken to Reid Health in Richmond to be checked out.
Witnesses told state troopers that Amanov had just passed two vehicles in a no-passing zone just before the crash.
Amanov was ticketed for Driving Too Fast to Avoid Collision, and Passing in Violation of Signs and Markings. Amanov was also issued tickets for four Federal D.O.T. Violations, including driving over his allowed time and other log book violations.
US 35 is expected to be closed for hours as crews work to remove the debris and rolls of paper.
The truck, registered to Interland INC. of La Grange, IL, was hauling rolls of paper. It was a total loss.
