The Clarksville Police Department was dispatched to the intersection of Tiny Town Road and Peachers Mill Road on Wednesday at 11:32 a.m.  in response to an overturned grain truck.

The driver, Richard Warren, 69, was dispatched by EMS to Gateway Medical Center for non-life threatening injuries due to this incident.

Warren was operating a 2000 Freightliner Tractor towing a Trailer loaded with soy beans. He was attempting a left turn from westbound Tiny Town Road to Peachers Mill Road when the  load shifted in the cargo trailer, causing the cargo trailer to roll and spill, and the truck to rollover.

Several witnesses including Travis Tanguay, Osidis Ayala, and Lawrence Krieg assisted in removing Warren from the vehicle, severing his seatbelt, and turning the truck off. Warren was transported to Gateway Medical Center with minor injuries and was subsequently released.  The roadway was cleared at approximately 5:30 p.m.

Warren was cited for Operators to Use Reasonable Care.
