The Emporia Gazette
No major injuries were reported after an APAC Shears semi-truck overturned in the US Highway 50 roundabout Wednesday morning.
Emporia Police Sergeant Lisa Sage told The Emporia Gazette the truck was hauling sand when it laid over on its side. Traffic heading into Emporia on W. Hwy 50 was rerouted for several hours as the scene was cleared.
The Lyon County Sheriff’s Office and Kansas Department of Transportation assisted with traffic control.
“APAC came out with a front loader and a dump truck to get the road clear,” Sage said. “It was one of the shortest rollover accidents we have worked out there. A big thanks to LYSO and KDOT for their help.”
