Henning man crashes truck

Published 11:04am Monday, April 25, 2011

Alcohol is thought to be a factor in the pickup truck crash of a Henning man on Saturday at about 9 a.m., the Otter Tail County Sheriff’s Office reported.

Robert Scott Taylor, 52, was driving his pickup truck east on County Highway 40, south of Henning, when the truck drifted to the south side of the road and hit a mailbox. Taylor then lost control of the truck and skidded it into the northbound ditch, where it ran into a power pole.

Taylor was unhurt, and the sheriff’s office are investigating if a DWI charge should be sought.
