Truck Rollover



The driver of a grain truck escaped injury Thursday when he lost control and the truck flipped over.

Chief Winona County Deputy Ron Ganrude said the truck, driven by 39-year-old Shawn Marx of Westby, Wisconsin, was westbound on County Road 6 near Fremont when he lost control.

Ganrude said the truck got on the edge of the highway and when Marx tried to correct it, the vehicle's load of grain shifted causing the rollover.

Ganrude said a large amount of grain spilled into the ditch causing one lane to be closed for cleanup.

Marx was cited for inattentive driving.
                
A commercial vehicle inspector was also called to the scene.

The incident was reported at 1:45 p.m.....
