Motorists traveling southbound on the turnpike from Emporia can once again use the mile marker 127 tollgate, after a rollover accident closed the exit briefly Saturday afternoon.

The closure happened after a semi-truck traveling northbound on the exit ramp overturned and rolled off of the roadway and onto the embankment. 

Details about accident have not yet been released by Kansas Highway Patrol.

Rollovers seem to be a sport around here.

You never have screwed up have you?

There’s no reason to “screw up” on that curve. There are paint markings. There are an abundance of signs. There is a big flashing speed limit sign that tells you when you’re going to fast! CDL drivers should have their licenses revoked for years if they tip over there. Lesson learned when they tip over there instead of in a 2 lane curve where they could kill someone.

Have you got a CDL?

Not to mention a bright sunny day and dry pavement. At least it wasn't a moving van filled with people's entire home furnishing inventories.

Not to that degree, no.

Or a tour bus filled with Hispanics fresh from the border.......oh wait, never mind.
