NORTH STAR — On July 18, at approximately 1:42 p.m., Darke County Deputies along with North Star Fire and Ansonia Rescue responded to State Route 705 near Coates Road in the S curve for a reported tractor-trailer roll-over crash with possible injuries.

Preliminary investigation revealed a black 2016 Kenworth tractor-trailer hauling eggs, driven by Gurdeep Singh, 27, of Greenwood, Ind. was traveling eastbound on State Route 705 when the driver failed to negotiate a curve causing it to roll over onto the right side of the roadway.
