TURN OFF — A truck driver from Winesburg, Ohio, was unable to make a turn off of West Reelfoot Avenue in Union City about 6:30 this morning, with his trailer dropping off into a ditch in front of Marshall Avenue in the area between the Magnum Inn and McDonald’s.

The truck’s load remained intact when it was righted by Buddy’s Wrecker Service of Union City and there was only minor damage to the truck and a little grass in the area where the mishap occurred. There were no injuries and no other vehicles were involved, with no charges filed. Police said one lane of traffic was blocked for about 90 minutes as the scene was cleared.
