Here is the official report regarding the John Deere combine that was hanging off a trailer at around 2:15 p.m. on Thursday. The 2020 Kenworth driven by 50-year-old Michael Murray of Gillette, Wyoming was entering Highway 59 southbound from 39 over next to McDonalds. The load shifted to the right and came loose from the flatbed trailer which caused deep gouges in the highway surface. Gasoline and transmission fluid spilled onto the roadway from the John Deere S670 combine. Murray told police that there were dips in the road surface which is what caused the load to shift. He was later cited for the loads spilling onto the road. The combine was tipped back on the trailer with the help of tractors from Van Wall Equipment of Denison after suffering an estimated $1,500 in damage during the initial incident.
