ANGOLA, Ind. (WANE) A truck driver died Friday morning after a load of steel beams came loose and crashed through the cab of the truck after he had slammed on the brakes. The incident took place in Indiana on U.S. 20 just west of I-69 Friday at about 6:20 a.m.
The truck driver has not yet been identified and it’s not known why he had to hit the brakes. He’s believed to have been the only person in the cab; however, that will be known for sure once crews finish removing the steel beams.
Signage on the truck lists it as belonging to Todd Berguson Trucking Inc., Arnot, PA with a maximum load weight of 80,000 pounds.
WANE reports the Angola Police Department has closed westbound U.S. 20 and it’s expected to be closed for some time.
