Speeding semi trailer rolls
SEND US A MESSAGE
On September 23 at 7:36 a.m. the Wadena County Sheriff’s Office was called to a report of a semi tractor-trailer that had rolled onto its side on Twin Lakes Road. Greenwaldt trucking was hauling turkey feed for Jenni-O when the driver, Jacob Harty of Motley, lost control of the semi and rolled. The trailer lost part of its load as the semi tipped. The remainder of the load had to be removed from the trailer before the tractor trailer could be towed from the scene, which caused Twin Lakes Road to be reduced to one lane of travel until late afternoon. No injuries resulted from the accident. The driver was cited for duty to drive with due care, as speed appeared to be a contributing factor in the crash.
The Wadena County Sheriff’s Office was assisted by the Menahga Police Department, Minnesota State Patrol, Menahga Fire Department and J&D Towing of Osage.
