LAPORTE, Ind. - A truck driver crashed his semitrailer while trying to change clothes as he drove at 60 mph on a northern Indiana highway.
Terry Gilmore, 59, of Ohio, told investigators he had set his cruise control so he could change while driving on U.S. 6 Monday night, the LaPorte County Sheriff's Department said.
He misjudged a curve and rolled off the road and into two fences, police said. Gilmore was not seriously injured, but was taken to LaPorte Hospital as a precaution.
The crash caused officers to close a portion of the road for more than three hours.
A witness told investigators she found Gilmore naked when she went to check on him right after the accident. No charges were filed, police said.
