Out of State Trucker Hits Gibson County Man


A Pennsylvania truck driver was arrested in Gibson County after allegedly hitting a truck stop employee with his semi.

Indiana State Police say 43-year-old Edward Raber stopped at the Pilot Truck Stop East on Tuesday, entered the shower facility without paying and allegedly defecated in the shower stall, despite the restrooms being nearby.

Raber allegedly shoved an employee who confronted him about what happened and left the building.  The employee and two of his coworkers went out to take pictures of Raber‘s truck and license plate as he left the truck stop.

However, Raber re-entered the parking lot and drove directly to the three employees, hitting one of them with his front bumper.  The employee refused medical attention.

State Police caught up with Raber near I-65 and U-S 231 and Raber was arrested without incident.  He‘s being held in the Gibson County Jail without bond on misdemeanor charges of Criminal Recklessness with a Vehicle, Reckless Driving, Battery and Trespassing.
