A 55,000 pound motor transport truck carrying building supplies made a wide turn at Park and Moulton Streets early this afternoon. The driver tried to miss a car at the intersection but misjudged the crown in the roadway. The trailer shifted and hit a tree. The tree gave way and crashed onto the trailer crushing the roof. There was no hazardous materials involved. The cargo was fiber glass insulation rolls.
Greenville Fire and rescue responded along with Greenville Police. Benson Brothers is sending a large wrecker to remove the tractor and trailer.
