Tractor-Trailer Driver Loses Control, Rig Overturns
The Canadian driver of a tractor trailer loaded with aluminum nuggets escaped serious injury when the rig overturned in Massena Monday morning.
State police say 59 year old Clovis Lafreniere of Napierville, Quebec received cuts to his head when his Transport Beauregard rig overturned on Route 37 and rolled twice, spilling its load.
Lafreniere told police his load shifted, causing the rig to drop off the shoulder of the highway.
The aluminum nuggets were being transported from Quebec to Seneca Falls, N.Y. for recycling.
Lafreniere was ticketed for failure to use a designated lane.
