A man hauling a load of gravel lost control of his vehicle between Center Point and Walker, resulting in injuries and a road blockage for about two hours Monday.
The crash happened shortly before noon in the 5200 block of North Center Point Road. Brian Schneider, 52, of Marion, was taken by ambulance with what appeared to be non-life-threatening injuries, according to a news release from the Linn County Sheriff’s Office.
Schneider “tried to correct the vehicle before putting it on its side, dumping the gravel load, with the vehicle coming to rest on the traveled portion of the roadway, totally blocking the road,” the release said.
Schneider was cited with failure to maintain control.
