Semi Rollover 5/8/13

On Monday, April 29, at approximately 9:50 a.m., the Fayette County Sheriff’s Office took a report of a semi that had overturned  in the 9000 block of Y Ave.

Following an investigation, it was determined that Gordon Earley Jr.  of Fairbank was operating a 2003 Freightliner when he attempted to make a right-hand turn into a private drive. The trailer entered the south ditch, causing the tractor/trailer to overturn, spilling a load of fertilizer into the ditch. No one was injured.

The sheriff’s deputies were assisted at the scene by the Westgate Fire Department, Fayette County Emergency Management, and the Iowa Department of Natural Resources.

The incident remains under investigation.
