Semi Rollover

Watertown Fire Rescue was dispatched shortly after 10:00am on 8/31/2022, for a semi truck that rolled over on 20th Ave and South Highway 81, the south bypass roundabout. On scene crews found a Peterbilt semi that was pulling double trailers. The semi and primary trailer were tipped on its side, the tandem trailer was still upright. The semi was carrying dry distiller grain. The driver failed to negotiate the roundabout and tipped over. Fire crews were on scene for just over 2 hours and assisted in the removal of the grain from the truck and cleaning up a small diesel spill and antifreeze spill. Performance Towing uprighted the truck and the road was opened up around 1pm. WFR was assisted on scene by Watertown Police Department and Codington County Emergency Management.
