Truck Crashes on I-35, Spills Load of Oranges


By Rachel Begle

CLEAR LAKE, Iowa (AP) - A truck crash along Interstate 35 in northern Iowa caused a load of oranges to tumble over the side of a bridge and onto railroad tracks below.

The Cerro Gordo County Sheriff's Office says the crash happened Thursday morning in Clear Lake when 36-year-old Singh Surinder, of Bakersfield, Calif., lost control of his truck in icy conditions.

The truck hit a bridge guardrail, causing its trailer to fall off the bridge and come to rest on its side.

The oranges inside the trailer fell onto train tracks beneath the bridge.

The sheriff's office says the driver won't be cited.
