No injuries in semi rollover, significant damage to truck and load
NORFOLK, Neb. -- Tuesday afternoon, Norfolk Police Division responded to a semi rollover around 2 p.m.
Captain Chad Reiman said that the truck was hauling building tresses at the time of the accident.
Reiman said that the load was heavy enough that it shifted and causing the semi to roll when it was going through the roundabout in the area of N. 37th Street and Highway 275 in Norfolk.
There were no injuries as a result of the accident. Reiman did say that there was significant damage to the truck and load as the semi was completely rolled on its side.
Reiman said NPD was assisted by Norfolk Fire and Rescue, because there was some fuel dripping from the truck, and they wanted to make sure no fuel went into storm drains.
Reiman told NCN that the clean-up and uprighting of the vehicle took about five and a half hours to complete.
The roundabout was closed for portions of the clean-up process for eastbound traffic.
Reiman said that the semi was a truck from Vernal, Utah through Samas Trucking LLC.
