Dump Truck Crashes Near La Salle

Posted by wlpo on July 15, 2010

A dump truck driver lost his load yesterday while on I-80 near La Salle.

State Police say that Lanny Schumaker of Missouri was eastbound on Interstate 80 just east of La Salle when a tire blew out.  The dump truck veered of the interstate, went through a guardrail and overturned in a ditch.  Fourteen tons of asphalt Schumaker was hauling spilled into the ditch.

Schumaker wasn’t hurt or ticketed.  The accident backed up traffic for a bit yesterday afternoon.
