Another 18 Wheeler Rollover, MOSCOW, November 22, 2011 - Shortly after 10 pm on November 22, 2011, a white 1995 Freightliner tractor trailer hauling a load of plywood turned over on FM-62 about 3.5 miles east of US-59. The driver, Rony Eduardo Valdez, 36, of Conroe stated that he heard something pop before he lost control of his rig. Valdez may have entered a curve too fast, this could possibly cause the load to shift causing the 18 wheeler to become unstable. Valdez was hauling a load of plywood. Plywood was scattered for approximately 200 yards. Americare Ambulance Service ws dispatched to the scene along with Troopers Darwon Evans and Corporal Sam Lattner with the Texas Highway Patrol.
