CLEWISTON, FL. -- A semi pulling a trailer filled with 22 tons of ammonium nitrate fertilizer rolled over while traveling southbound from US 27 (State Road 25) merging westbound onto State Road 80.
Driver, Kelvin Randall Clark, 35 of South Bay was attempting to negotiate a right hand curve onto State Road 80 about 12:30 p.m. Tuesday.
For unknown reasons he failed to maintain control of his vehicle and overturned the vehicle onto its left side and spilled its load across the eastbound lane. It came to final rest partially in the grassy median and westbound lane on its left side, facing west.
