The shoulder alongside Bluestem Road is very unforgiving. Early this afternoon the driver of a semi truck loaded with hay bales found that out.
The truck’s tires got off the pavement ever so minimally, but that was all it took to roll the truck onto the roadway.
The driver was the only occupant of the truck. He was not injured. Fire crews remain on scene to place oil dry on the fuel that was dripping from the truck’s fuel tank.
