PARKE COUNTY, Ind. (WTHI) - Police have identified the man involved in a Parke County crash on Friday morning.

The crash happened around 9:30 on State Road 59, just south of County Road 720 South.

That is near Mansfield.

According to police, 69-year-old Donald Stevenson of Reelsville, Indiana was driving a semi south on 59 when he suddenly went off the road into a wooded area.

Stevenson was trapped inside the semi for about one hour before rescuers could free him.
