Tractor Trailer Overturns on 220 North
Around 4:15 PM Friday a tractor trailer hauling wood chips overturned at the notorious turn on 220 near Draper’s Florist in Bassett. The driver reported had a “gash on his head” and was taken to the Martinsville Hospital. State Police estimate the driver was pushing the speed limit a bit and it’s likely his load shifted in the turn causing the vehicle to turn over. The curve at this area has been the scene of many similar incidents over the years.
