The Benton County Sheriff's Department posted on Monday that a hauler truck filled with potatoes flipped over around 4 in the morning. The truck had flipped on its side spilling a load of potatoes all over the highway and the surrounding ditch.
The incident happened on SR-221 around milepost 19 and would close a few lanes while cleanup of the road taters ensued.
The Trucks Tires were Bald
In the social media post, the Benton County Sheriff's Department mentioned that the truck was "clearly not road worthy" and posted pictures to back up the claim. The pictures show two different sides of the tires warn almost completely bald. The Benton County Sheriff's Office warns to check and perform scheduled maintenance before heading out with a job.
