Avoid more tragedies by securing loads

fatalaccidentHow tragic that 61-year-old Larry W. Dobbs, a former Winfield police chief, lost his life Monday while trying to do the good deed of picking up Sheetrock that had flown off the back of another person’s pickup truck on K-96, where Dobbs was struck by a semi truck. As the community keeps Dobbs’ family in its thoughts and prayers, the incident underscores how crucial it is for drivers to secure whatever they are hauling in their trucks or trailers so that roadways are clear of debris.
