Tuesday morning around 10:30, Indiana State Police troopers and Sullivan County emergency agencies responded to a 911 call reporting a tractor-trailer had crashed into the Coal Miner Café in the town of Dugger. Police say that a blue, Kenworth tractor pulling an empty coal hauling trailer and driven by 63-year-old, Gary Nash of Sullivan, IN., was eastbound on State Road 54 and turned south onto State Road 159. The tractor-trailer traveled approximately 100 feet south and suddenly veered to the right traveling off the west edge of the roadway and striking the café. The tractor-trailer was operating under the name of Ajax Trucking from Sullivan. Gary Nash was taken to Sullivan County Community Hospital for treatment and to see if a medical episode may have contributed to the crash. There were no early indications of defects found with the tractor-trailer combination after an on-scene inspection by troopers. No citations were issued to Nash and drugs and/or alcohol were not a factor. The injured café patrons were 81 year old Madge Booker, of Sullivan and 66 year old Gloria Bixler, of Dugger. Both were treated for complaints of pain at Sullivan County Community Hospital.
