Truck Carrying 43,000 lbs. of Cucumbers Tips Over In Calhoun County
The Calhoun County Sheriff’s Office says that it appears the semi truck carrying around 43,000 pounds of cucumbers failed to negotiate a curve at I-94 and Partello Rd. near Marshall around 10:40pm Wednesday, causing it to tip into the intersection. Initial investigation shows that the truck was travelling with excessive speed and failed to stop at a stop sign, leading to the crash.
The driver, a 47-year-old North Carolina man, wasn’t hurt, but he was cited for several traffic violations. The stretch of road was shut down for around 8 hours so the scene could be cleaned up.
