Spilled Wood

Tuesday, July 28, 2015 | 5:07 PM

Tuesday afternoon, just after 2 p.m., a tractor-trailer loaded with lumber left the Universal Forest Products plant at Delmar heading south on Highway 13. Rounding a curve, still north of Natural Bridge, the load shifted and the truck rolled over on it's side, dumping the wood in the highway and ditch. The highway was shut down for many hours as workers picked up the lumber from the side of the roadway. The driver was not injured and there were no other vehicles involved. 

A post note, a tractor-trailer was detoured by Lynn fireman at Natural Bridge as the driver elected to try making it over County Road 6. When the driver arrived on the scene of the wood spill, she asked if she could come through. It was then a discovery was made which stopped the truck from traveling any further than the location of the spilled wood. Apparently, when the truck crossed over the railroad on the county road, the crossing ripped a hole in a fuel tank and was leaking bad enough the driver was told not to continue. The driver stated she was running out of crew duty time and was in a hurry. It was one time, being in a hurry did not pay.
