A semi-truck carrying 47,000 pounds of scrap aluminum shavings flipped over

TRUMBULL COUNTY, Ohio (WKBN) – A crash on the ramp from state Route 11 south to Interstate 80 has been cleaned up, and the road has been reopened.

It was temporarily closed due to a crash involving a semi-truck carrying 47,000 pounds of scrap aluminum shavings.

The truck was taking the ramp from Route 11 south and fell onto the concrete barrier.

There was no easy way to upright the truck and all that weight inside. Emergency responders were afraid the shavings might bust through the side of the truck.

Two tow trucks worked together to do the job and reopen the road within a couple hours.

No injuries were reported.
