That’s his story and he’s sticking to it

Patrick Tarr, 29, a North St. Louis County truck driver for Werner, on May 5 explains to Missouri State Highway Patrol Cpl. Coby Holzschuh how he made a sharp right-hand turn onto Morre Road while traveling west on U.S. 50 to avoid a car which had passed him and then cut him off. Tarr’s load of 40,000 pounds of bagged and palleted Kingsford Match Light Charcoal broke through the top of the trailer and spilled into the ditch when the 2019 International tractor went onto its side. Tarr said he was supposed to go north on U.S. 63 to Iowa after leaving the Kingsford plant in Belle but apparently ended up traveling through Owensville to reach Highway 19, then north to U.S. 50. He crashed at noon. Clean up lasted until 6:30.
