A Robinson couple was injured in an accident Saturday night in Gibson County, Ind.
According to Indiana State Police, Bill Sempsrote, 67, 7906 E. Laurel Lane, was heading north on U.S. 41 near County Road 400 in his 2006 Toyota utility truck, around 10:35 p.m., when he was struck from behind by Marcus Osborne, 27, Henderson, Ky., driving a 2005 Chrysler 300. The collision caused the Sempsrote vehicle to go off the road and roll over.
