Large tree crushes semi trailer

A large tree came down, mashing a semi trailer on the Richard Tarvin Trucking property in rural Dewey on Saturday.

RURAL DEWEY — Richard Tarvin said he has had the wind turn over a couple of semi trailers, but never before had a tree come down on one.

A large tree crushed a trailer on a lot across U.S. 136 from Tarvin’s trucking offices last Saturday — another victim of recent storms that have swept through the area.

“I had no idea the tree was in that bad of shape on the inside of it,” Tarvin said.

“It could have been worse.”

He said the plans are to clean up the site on Tuesday.
