Semi Dumps Televisions After Crashing Near Ottawa

Posted by wlpo on November 5, 2010

A trucker spilled a bunch of televisions after crashing west of Ottawa.

Blake Bales of Iowa told troopers that he blacked out while he was driving east on I-80 west of Ottawa.  He proceeded to drive his semi 300 yards into a ditch, entering IDOT’s old test drive site.  The semi rolled over onto its side.  The trailer spilled several televisions.

Bales wasn’t hurt but was ticketed for improper lane usage.  The crash happened just before seven this morning.
