Semi Full of Eggs Rolls Over in Northern Darke County

On March 25, 2013 at 8:20 PM Darke County Deputies were dispatched to the area of New Weston Ft. Loramie Road and Hillgrove Ft. Recovery Road on the report of a semi on it's side. Preliminary investigation revealed that the driver, Patrick W. Moore Jr., 49 of Arkansas, was eastbound on New Weston Ft. Loramie Road when he drove off the right side of the roadway and was pulled further by the deep snow. The 2006 Freightliner and trailer, which was loaded with eggs, rolled over onto its side. Moore, who was the lone occupant, was not injured in the crash. Alcohol may have been a factor in the crash. Southwest Mercer Fire Dept. was called to the scene for preventive measures.

The accident remains under investigation by the Darke County Sheriff's Office.
