SUMMARY OF CRASH: Euber was travelling easterly on Mill Road approaching the intersection with Woodstock Road(US4). 

He allegedly stepped on the gas instead of the brake due to suffering from a medical condition.  Keegan, operating a box truck belonging to Allard’s Unfinished Furniture was travelling west on Woodstock Road and was struck by Euber in the rear wheel.

The force of the impact broke the rear axle and driveshaft on the truck and caused it to overturn on its left side. 

Euber’s vehicle suffered major front end damage as well as air bag deployment. Route 4 was temporarily shut down until one lane could be opened. 

The eastbound lane remained closed for approximately 1 1/2 hours until the truck could be uprighted and removed. 

Euber’s passenger, Morse was transported to DHMC with minor injuries. 

Due to the Route 4 closure, a tractor trailer car carrier unit attempted to take a detour through Roundhouse Road and exit onto Route 5 when the carrier got stuck across both southbound lanes of Route 5, causing Route 5 to be closed for a short period of time until Sabil&Sons could pull the carrier out.
