Case

Ephrata Police on 01-18-19 at approximately 1240pm were called for a vehicle accident at the intersection of East Main St (US 322) and Ridge Avenue in Ephrata Borough involving an overturned trailer hauling a large truck.    

Delbert Martin of Ephrata was hauling a full sized flat bed truck on a large trailer West on E. Main St and as he negotiated a right turn onto Ridge Ave the trailer's load apparently  shifted which caused the trailer to overturn and dump the load (truck) onto the roadway.    The accident shut down Ridge Avenue for over an hour and caused some delays along E. Main St (US 322) while heavy tow equipment was brought to the scene to upright the trailer and the load (truck).   East Cocalico Police Department's Commercial Vehicle Inspection Specialist and Ephrata Fire Police were also on scene to assist with the investigation.  No injuries were reported.  

Investigation continues into the cause and traffic violations are pending.
