Oglesby farmer gets combine stuck at Route 6/251 intersection in Peru

Posted by wlpo on July 21, 2016

Here’s something you don’t see everyday. A combine became wedged underneath the Route 6 overpass on Route 251 in Peru.

Forty-seven-year-old James Sauter of Oglesby was going north and had just crossed the bridge in Peru when he moved to the middle of the road approaching the overpass. The combine was too tall and got stuck under the overpass just past one Wednesday afternoon.

While drivers were still able to pass the combine, Peru Police responded to help keep things moving. After removing a piece of sheet metal from the top of the combine, Sauter was able to go on his way. The ordeal last about a half hour.

You can see a picture of the jammed farm implement on the Classic Hits 103.9 WLPO Facebook page.
