COCHISE COUNTY — Losing a load beside the road, one truck made a mess on Friday night.
Just seven miles out of Willcox on Interstate 10, at roughly 5:30 p.m. last Friday near milepost 347, a single truck lost control and flipped onto its top.
The truck was loaded with bags of concrete and bricks, which were scattered down I-10 after the crash.
Two Willcox Fire Department trucks responded to the scene. According to Willcox Director of Public Safety Dale Hadfield, the driver suffered several non-life threatening injuries from the crash and was taken to Northern Cochise Community Medical Center to be treated.
“When I looked at it, it looked like a tire blew,” Hadfield said, “but that is speculation on my part.”
