Two Kirkland men transported to hospital after truck rollover

KIRKLAND – Two Kirkland men were taken to the hospital with injuries after they were trapped in a pickup truck that landed upside down in a creek following a rollover crash early Monday.

A call came in to the DeKalb County Sheriff’s Office at 7:49 a.m. about a single-vehicle rollover incident on Pearl Street north of Baseline Road. David Fuller, 42, of the 60 block of Kirkland Road, was driving a 2004 Ford F250 south on Pearl Street with Chad Loring, 42, of the 400 block of Prairie Street as a passenger. Fuller drove into the west ditch, hit a guardrail and went off the bridge, landing on the truck’s top, according to a news release from the DeKalb County Sheriff’s Office.

DeKalb County Sheriff’s Chief Deputy Andy Sullivan said the incident didn’t appear to be weather-related.

“It was probably going too fast and it ended up in the ditch,” Sullivan said.

Fuller was charged Monday with failure to reduce speed to avoid a crash, not wearing a seat belt and driving a vehicle without insurance. Loring also was not wearing his seat belt, according to the sheriff’s news release.
