Over the hill
A Family Dollar semi box trailer teetered precariously
on a hillside in Lisbon Thursday night,
after the driver reportedly turned onto a closed
street and got stuck trying to turn around.
According to Lisbon police, Hector R. Alcauter,
47, of Cincinnati had turned north onto Beaver
Street when he found the street was closed
and turned left onto West Chestnut Street.
Alcauter attempted to turn around on West
Chestnut backing into the grass and not realizing
the ground was not flat until it was to late.
The trailer was on a steep drop off and pulled
the back driver’s side wheels of the cab completely
off the ground as it began to tip over.
The landing gear dug into the grass and
stopped the trailer from turning over. According
to Lisbon Patrolman Brian Deack, Alcauter
was cited for driving off state routes. Geary’s
Towing in Leetonia was notified and pulled the
semi tractor trailer up the hill back onto West
Chestnut Street. Morning Journal/Patti Schaeffer
