The State Patrol received reports from several motorists as well as the Maratho County Sheriff’s Department around 6:45 PM Wednesday that there were shards of wood and broken glass spread across the westbound lanes of Highway 29 near the Business Highway 51 exit.
Police believe that some sort of transport truck lost the furniture, resulting in several mattresses and other furniture items strewn across the roadway.
A 16-person passenger van as well as a tractor-trailer both ran into mattresses and then crashed into one another. A mattress became stuck in the tractor-trailer’s drive shaft and it had to be towed from the scene.
Additionally, a minivan behind the two vehicles had to brake sharply to avoid striking them, which then led to a truck behind the minivan crashing into it.
Nobody was injured in the two crashes.
