At 8:20 a.m. Sunday, crews with the Orland Volunteer Fire Department were called to the 135 mile marker, eastbound of the Indiana Toll Road, for a crash involving two semis. Once firefighters arrived on the scene, they learned one of the drivers was pinned in the cab of his semi, which was hauling a tanker loaded with diesel fuel. That very same fuel was spilling onto the roadway, according to WOWO.

The condition of the man has not yet been released and investigators are still looking into the cause of the crash.
