Just after noon today, May 25,, a tractor-trailer driver was attempting to turn south onto Brevard Road from Haywood Road. Having just passed several signs stating “No Trucks over 13,000 LBS GVW” sign, he still tried to make the turn.
“This is not the first time this has happened,” says Mr. Whittaker, who operates a second-hand store in the building. “No. sir, this makes three that I know of.”
Trucks have also damaged the Atkinson Furniture Store across the street in the past.
No one was injured, and the damage to the building and the trailer, appears to be minor. The truck was towed off with a heavy-duty tow rig.
