More than 170 bushels of soybeans spilled onto U.S. 127 this evening after a dump truck driver slammed into a slow-moving farm vehicle.
It took crews more than two hours to sweep the soybeans off the side of the highway. The crash happened around 5 p.m. on U.S. 127 just north of Sebring Warner Road near Greenville, according to the Darke County Sheriff’s Office.
A deputy at the scene said the dump truck driver apparently was not paying attention when he struck the back of the other truck, which had caution lights and signs indicating it was slow-moving. The dump truck driver was cited for assurred clear distance, the deputy said.
No injuries were reported.
