Recommended Posts


ANGOLA, Ind. (WANE) A truck driver died Friday morning after a load of steel beams came loose and crashed through the cab of the truck after he had slammed on the brakes. The incident took place on US 20 just west of I-69 Friday at about 6:20 a.m.

The driver has been identified as Shawn H. Spencer, 44, of Rome, Pennsylvania.  He was the lone occupant of the truck.  He was traveling west on U.S. 20 when the incident took place and investigators haven’t determined why he had to stop suddenly.  No other vehicles were involved.

Signage on the truck lists it as belonging to Todd Berguson Trucking Inc., Arnot, PA with a maximum load weight of 80,000 pounds.

The Angola Police Department closed westbound US 20 for about five hours while crews cleaned up the scene.
