WILBERFORCE — A semi truck driver misjudged his distance as he attempted to turn right from Bickett Road onto U.S. Route 42 at approximately 9:02 Thursday, and overturned his load, according to the Ohio State Patrol. The road will be closed until approximately noon.

The driver is okay, but has been cited for failure to control.

The truck was carrying a load of tires and Ohio State Patrol troopers on the scene said it must be emptied before it can be turned upright, which would allow the roadway to be cleared. Individuals were clearing out the truck’s trailer at approximately 11 a.m.
