A loaded semi-trailer truck loaded with industrial mowers flipped on its side just west of Montrose and 191st St. on the far east side of Edgerton last Wednesday afternoon, May 25. The truck’s driver escaped injury. The vehicle toppled onto the front yard of a private residence. Johnson County Fire District No. 1 personnel responded and Johnson County Sheriff’s Department investigated. The truck’s driver reportedly lost control after he was crowded off the edge of the pavement on 191st Street by an oncoming vehicle. There is no paved or graveled shoulder along the roadway.
