Bucket trucks collide on Maeystown Road
Two J.F. Electric bucket trucks collided shortly after 8 a.m. Wednesday in the area of 6239 Maeystown Road near Wartburg, resulting in one of the trucks turning onto its side.
Neither of the truck drivers, David Riechenberg, 36, of Freeburg and Joshua Bezil, 27, of Carlyle, required medical transport from the scene.
The trucks were apparently repairing utility poles in the area when one of the trucks rear-ended the other. The crash is still under investigation. Both trucks were traveling south on Maeystown Road when Riechenberg’s truck rear-ended the truck driven by Bezil.
Waterloo police and fire responded to the scene along with the Monroe County Sheriff’s Department and Monroe County EMS.
The roadway was closed for a few hours as crews cleared the crash scene.
