OGDEN — A white semi-truck carrying vinyl fencing rolled over on the corner of 30th Street and Wall Avenue Wednesday afternoon.

“I was going to Idaho,” said the driver, who wanted to remain anonymous.

He and his wife, the only passenger, were traveling westbound toward Interstate 15. The couple had been en route only minutes.

“I heard somebody honk so I looked, which took my attention off the road,” said the driver, of Smoot Brothers Transportation. “When I looked back the light was red, so I downshifted to fifth and tried to make the turn really quick and it tipped over.”

The driver had traveled from Brigham City that morning to pick up a load in the truck, which he has driven for the past month and a half.

“Somebody turned the corner and honked and I thought maybe I was doing something wrong,” he told the Standard-Examiner. “So I looked in the mirror and when I looked up — ”

His wife stood with family, of Ogden, as her husband filed a police report.

There were no injuries in the accident. No other vehicles were involved.
