Sibley, Iowa — A Spencer man was injured and a ready-mix truck was damaged in an accident near Sibley on Monday, November 2, 2015.
The Osceola County Sheriff’s Office reports that 33-year-old Wayne Grimes of Spencer was driving a ready-mix truck owned by Great Lakes Concrete, southbound on Highway 59, a mile and a half south of Allendorf or five miles east of Sibley. The report says Grimes attempted to make a right turn onto A30 or 180th Street. Due to the speed and shifting load of the vehicle, the report says Grimes lost control and the truck rolled into the south ditch and came to rest on its right side.
A private vehicle transported Grimes to the Osceola Community Hospital.
The sheriff’s office reports there was $60,000 in damage to the truck.
Grimes was cited on a charge of Failure to Maintain Control.
