May 2, 2012

COVODE — It happened all over again — for the third time in three years — as another truck rolled over in the same exact location on Route 119 in Covode, when the driver of the tractor-trailer took the curve in Covode too fast and rolled up onto Randy Shultz’s front yard around 7:40 p.m. Wednesday.

Shultz said he has lived on Route 119 at the curve for three years, and not only do the trucks roll over into his yard, the cars do, too.
