A semi truck belonging to Kendra Trucking in Cherry Lake wrecked just before the crossroads of Hwy 53 and Hwy 150 on Sunday, April 27. It is unclear how the driver lost control but the semi ended up laying on it side.
According to Cherry Lake Fire Rescue Fire Chief Scott Singletary, the semi was loaded with cooking oil that was contained in plastic jugs. This was a minor spill and the cooking oil is non hazardous.
Hwy 150 was closed for over an hour while workers transferred the oil to a new truck.
