Grain truck rolls over, dumps load

A grain truck rolled over Friday morning, but the driver wasn't injured.

The driver was heading north on U.S. 250 south of Fitchville when his truck blew a tire, New London Volunteer Fire Chief John Chapin said. The truck went off the east side of the road and rolled over in a field.

"He spilled the whole load. I don't know how much was in there," Chapin said.

The amount of contents and the driver's destination are unknown.

"I didn't talk to him. I was on squad," Chapin said.

The state Highway Patrol handled the crash investigation. Troopers identified the driver as Kevin W. Wynn, 50, of Ashland.

Troopers determined Wynn's right front tire blew and the 2000 International Harvester hit a ditch, overturned, but came to rest upright on its wheels. The accident happened at 7:50 a.m.

No citation was issued. Troopers had the truck towed from the scene with disabling damage.
