FULTON COUNTY, Ind. - Three people, including a road service employee, were injured in a crash and subsequent cleanup effort on County Road 700 North and U.S. 31 Thursday afternoon, according to the Fulton County Sheriff's Office.

At 2:02 p.m., emergency crews were called to the area for a crash involving a semi and passenger vehicle.

According to the investigation, a 2008 black Chevrolet pickup truck was traveling west on C.R. 700 N when the vehicle allegedly crashed into a semi traveling on U.S. 31.

The semi, a milk tanker, was empty at the time but the impact of the crash caused the semi to exit the west side of the road, reports said.

The driver of the pickup truck was taken to the hospital for head injuries.

The driver of the semi was taken to the hospital for minor injuries.

While recovering the semi, a road service worker was struck in the leg by a recovery vehicle that was left in neutral without the emergency brake engaged, deputies reported.

The recovery vehicle was unoccupied at the time but rolled down an embankment and hit the employee.

The vehicle then hit one of the semi's tires, stopping it from further injuring the employee.

The employee was taken to the hospital for a leg injury.
