Flatbed Truck Involved In Accident

(Le Mars) -- A flatbed truck hauling stacks of drywall sheetrock, insulation, and other building supplies was involved in a one-vehicle roll-over accident Wednesday afternoon.  The accident occured at about 2:00 p.m. at the intersection of Highway 60 and 120th Street, north of Le Mars.  The truck is owned by the Jarco Builders Company from Sioux City.  It spilled its cargo contents in a ditch.  The truck was northbound on Highway 60 when apparently the driver lost control, and the truck left the highway entering the east ditch and rolled. The driver was transported to the Floyd Valley Hospital in Le Mars, then transported to Mercy Medical Center in Sioux City.   Responding to the accident were the Le Mars Fire and Rescue Department, Le Mars Ambulance, Plymouth County Sheriff's Department, Iowa Highway Patrol and the Iowa Department of Transportation. The identity of the injured driver has not been released.
