Scrap Metal Semi Rolls On Andalusia Rd. At Turkey Hollow

Posted: Updated:

Crews were called in to assist a semi that rolled over on Turkey Hollow Road, near Andalusia Road in Rock Island County.

The driver told KWQC he was northbound on Turkey Hollow, carrying scrap metal from Quincy to Davenport around 6:30 on Thursday morning, May 8, 2014.

As he approached Andalusia Road, he says the brakes on the semi failed.

He says he was able to slow the 68,800 pound vehicle down enough to get it turned onto Andalusia road, but it rolled onto its side and spilled it's load into the ditch.

The driver says he only received minor injuries.

The vehicle is mostly off the road and not blocking traffic, but traffic could be impacted as the semi is righted.
