Tire Trailer Tips During Trucker's U-Turn

A trucker tries a U-turn and ends up toppling one of the trailers in tow.

Police said it happened around 12:30am Thursday near 51st and Mingo.

The driver of a dual-trailer semi truck didn't quite make it when he tried to make a u-turn in the middle of the intersection.

The trailer's load of tires shifted and the rear trailer tipped over. Crews spent at least three hours trying to get the trailer upright again. The tires had to be unloaded one at a time by hand.

Police said the driver will be ticketed. A worker unloading the tires was hit in the face by a piece of wood. He was treated for cuts and should recover.
