PANNA MARIA – A one vehicle accident closed a portion of FM 81 near Panna Maria on Monday Jan. 2.

According to reports Carlos Venezuela was traveling east in a Supreme Vacuum Service truck pulling a trailer loaded with salt water when he attempted to go around a curve at an unsafe speed.

While going around the curve the trailer’s load shifted causing the trailer tires to leave the road.

The truck and trailer rolled over coming to rest facing west.

A section of FM 81 was closed while the truck was towed and repairs were made.
