Oversized load breaks tractor trailer hauling it

An oversized load broke the tractor trailer that was hauling it through Arkansas on Thursday.

The incident happened on March 8th at approximately 9:30 a.m. in Hazen, Arkansas.

According to a Facebook post by the truck driver, Bill King, the tractor trailer was hauling a D11 bulldozer eastbound along Route 70 when the weight of the load cracked the trailer, forcing the big rig to stop.

“We are in the mess, can’t move east bound! They have to bring out a total new 13 axle and set up…” wrote King.

“This was not my load I was escorting,” King added.

The roadway has since been cleared.
