Lost furniture results in crashes on Highway 29

According to the State Patrol, a driver who lost a load of furniture from the back of his truck Wednesday caused two crashes and many hours of traffic delays.

Authorities are still searching for the vehicle and the driver responsible for the lost furniture.

The State Patrol received reports from several motorists as well as the Maratho County Sheriff’s Department around 6:45 PM Wednesday that there were shards of wood and broken glass spread across the westbound lanes of Highway 29 near the Business Highway 51 exit.

A 16-person passenger van as well as a tractor-trailer both struck mattresses in the road at the same time, resulting in their two vehicles colliding. A mattress became stuck in the tractor-trailer’s drive shaft and it had to be towed from the scene.

A minivan behind the two vehicles had to brake sharply to avoid striking them, which then led to a truck behind the minivan crashing into it.

Nobody was injured in the two crashes.
