Truck Carrying Crane on Route 181 Overturns, Shuts Down Roadway


UPDATE (6:39 p.m.): U.S. Route 181 is now open.

CABOOL, Mo. — An oversized-load truck hauling a crane overturned Monday, closing down U.S. Route 181 south of Cabool, Missouri.

The vehicle hauling the crane overturned some time before 2:50 p.m. Monday. No injuries were reported, but the recovery efforts are taking a while, according to the Cabool Fire Department’s Facebook post.

The fire department is rerouting traffic around Cessna Road and Bluebird Road.

The 120,000-pound crane is causing a bit of an issue, according to the department.

“(Route) 181 will probably be shut down both directions during recovery efforts,” said the department in the post. “Please use an alternative route if possible.”

Road closings will be updated as the information is received.
