Cement truck cause of Tuesday highway closure

A cement truck trying to avoid a multi-car accident north of Baileys Harbor still caused State Highway 57 to be closed for a number of hours Tuesday afternoon.  The driver of the vehicle was traveling north on the highway shortly before 11:40 a.m. when he encountered a long stream of cars yielding for the tractor parade parking at AC Tap. The tractors were a part of the annual Freddy K. B.S. Tractor Ride, which celebrates the life of the late Freddie Kodanko. The long line forced the driver to brake heavily and eventually take evasive action to avoid hitting the vehicles. The maneuver took him into the ditch alongside the highway where it eventually tipped over due to the nature of its contents. The driver was not injured as a result and was not cited. Crews had the scene cleared by 3:30 p.m.
