Skid-steer bucket flies off truck, hits vehicle after crash, officials say

One person was injured Saturday afternoon when a truck hit a bridge support, causing a skid-steer bucket it was hauling to fly off and hit another vehicle, officials said.

Crews were sent around 1:30 p.m. to Femrite Drive near the interstate for reports of a two-vehicle crash with possible injuries, according to a release.

Firefighters found a Dodge Ram flatbed truck with a Bobcat skid-steer on it with heavy front-end damage, officials said. There was also a Jeep Latitude SUV with damage to the hood and windshield on the passenger side. There was also a skid-steer bucket on the road next to the Jeep.

The occupants of the Jeep told officers the Dodge Ram veered across their lane and hit the bridge support head-on, according to the release. As the Dodge Ram hit the interstate bridge support, the skid-steer bucket flew off the flatbed and hit the Jeep.

The driver of the Dodge Ram was taken to the hospital with non-life-threatening injuries. Everyone else involved said they were not injured.
