A 33-year-old man was flown to Memorial Hospital following a truck rollover Saturday afternoon, Aug. 16, on U.S. 20 west of S.R. 15.
A Samaritan medical helicopter transported Kenny Vogel, of Laporte, to Memorial Hospital. Vogel had lacerations to the head and complained of pain.
Vogel was traveling eastward on U.S. 20 west of S.R. 15. He drove left of center into oncoming traffic and off the north side of U.S. 20. His truck then went down an embankment and struck the ground.

The Elkhart County Sheriff’s Department, as well as Jefferson Township and Concord Township fire departments responded to the scene. Emergency dispatchers received the call about the rollover at 1:34 p.m.
The crash is still under investigation.
