On Wednesday, Nov. 4, at 11:41 a.m., the Crawford County Sheriff’s Department was notified of a one-vehicle rollover on Johnstown Road about a half-mile east of Highway 27 in Utica Township.

Jamey S. Erlandson, 44, was driving a 1993 International dump truck owned by Blackjack Transport, LLC. Erlandson was driving east on Johnstown Road and slowing as he was driving down a hill. He moved onto the shoulder of the road to allow a vehicle to drive past, traveling westbound on Johnstown Road. As Erlandson moved onto the south-side shoulder, he lost control of the truck causing the truck to turn over in the ditch. The truck came to rest on the driver’s side. The truck was being used to transport about an eighth of a load of blacktop from a job site for Badger Environmental and Earth Works.

Erlandson claimed no injuries from the crash. The International truck sustained severe damage and was towed from the scene.
