Concrete Truck Accident, Pullman 1975
This Lewiston Pre-Mix truck, loaded with concrete, over
turned at the entrance to the Washington Stare University
Wednesday Morning and completely blocked the main entrance
to the university. Driver Gary W. Heilman, 24, of Moscow,
was not injured, but there was an estimated 40,000 dollars
of damage to the truck and it took a heavy duty crane from a
construction project to right it -- three and one half hours
after the accident. Workers poured a mixture of sugar and
water into the tank to prevent the concrete from hardening.
