Semi rolls, flips over into Iowa River


HARDIN COUNTY (KWWL)-- A semi driver is rescued after his trailer slides down a river bank, and flips over.

Hardin County Sheriff's deputies say 59 year old Melvin Boone was pulled up next to the Iowa River, attempting to dump a load of concrete when the bank gave way Wednesday afternoon.

The semi rolled onto its top into the river, trapping Boone inside. A crane was able to pull the semi out of the river.

Authorities say Boone was taken to a Marshalltown hospital. His injuries have not been released.
