Hurt eagle moving to Detroit Zoo

VINCENNES -- A bald eagle found badly injured in southern Indiana is getting a new home at the Detroit Zoo.

The eagle has been recovering at the home of Vincennes wildlife rescuer Angel Lange since soon after being spotted in April in nearby Dubois County with a badly broken wing that had to be amputated. The Vincennes Sun-Commercial reported officials believe the bird was hurt by flying into a power line.

Federal law allows an eagle to remain in a rescuer's care only 180 days before it must be released or moved to a permanent home. Federal wildlife officials picked the Detroit Zoo.

Semi strikes house

SULLIVAN -- Authorities say emergency workers needed nearly an hour to free a semitrailer driver after the truck crashed into a house along U.S. 41 near Sullivan.

Sullivan County Sheriff Clark Cottom said a person inside the house wasn't hurt when the crash happened Sunday night. The impact of the crash left the semi's cab mostly lodged inside the front of the one-story ranch-style house.

Cottom says the semi driver and a passenger were taken to a Terre Haute hospital with nonlife-threatening injuries.

Investigators didn't immediately disclose a cause for the crash.
