Highway 20 rollover

A truck rests on its roof after flipping over Saturday afternoon in the 6500 block of Washington Avenue (Highway 20). Mount Pleasant Police officers briefly shut down the eastbound lanes.

MOUNT PLEASANT — Eastbound Washington Avenue (Highway 20) was briefly shut down Saturday afternoon when a white Ford pickup truck rolled onto its roof between The Lanes on 20 and Rocky Rococo.

Mount Pleasant Police officers responded at 2:07 p.m. to the 6500 block of Washington Avenue and began shutting the road down at about 2:15 p.m., according to Sgt. Chris Paulson. Officers reopened the left lane at about 2:45 p.m. and cleared the scene shortly thereafter at 3 p.m.

No one was injured in the crash and no other vehicles were involved. Paulson said the truck’s driver hit a patch of snow, overcorrected and hit the curb, causing the truck to flip onto its roof.

Paulson said he was not sure how extensively the truck was damaged, but “the roof was certainly bent up. It was crushed.”

After the truck was flipped back over, snow spread across the road. Officers shoveled the road to prevent another crash before they left the scene.
