A semi pulled out in front of an SUV near the I-70 intersection Monday causing possible injury to one man and major damage to his vehicle.
Knightsville resident Gary Dellmo, 44, was northbound on SR 59 about noon in his 1999 Ford SUV. When he approached the Pilot Travel Center, a semi tractor-trailer driven by John Zimbeco Jr., Bridgeport, Ohio, pulled out onto SR 59 in front of Dellmo's vehicle.
Dellmo was unable to stop and his SUV collided with the semi. The driver side front of his vehicle stopped slightly under the semi trailer. Dellmo was transported to St. Vincent Clay Hospital by Athens Ambulance. His condition was not known at press time.
Dep. Brian Pierce investigated.
