Forklifts begin removing sheets of metal at the intersection of state Route 29 and Havemann Road after a semitrailer lost its load Wednesday afternoon. Thomas Leach, 37, of Arlington, Texas, was driving eastbound on state Route 29 when one metal sheet reportedly shifted and cut security straps holding the remaining pieces. Celina Police Chief Dave Slusser said the 2:59 p.m. incident miraculously resulted in no injuries or damage to other vehicles (the sliced leg of a traffic sign is visible in the left side of the picture). Cleanup took approximately three hours.
