Posted by wlpo on February 29, 2012

A semi driver who overturned his rig near Sheffield was ticketed for his troubles.

Garrison Patrick of Clinton, Iowa had to be cut out of his semi after overturning it yesterday along the westbound Interstate 80 ditch near the Route 40 exit.  He was taken to Kewanee Hospital.  Patrick was also ticketed for improper lane usage.

The crash happened just before noon Tuesday and closed one lane of traffic for a few hours.  His truck started leaking a small amount of ethanol but there was no fire.
