Overturned truck halts Rt. 163 traffic

MARBLEHEAD, Ohio - A dump truck overturned yesterday on State Rt. 163, just east of Lightner Road in Danbury Township, because of an axle malfunction, completely closing Route 163 to traffic at that location for 1 1/2 hours, the Ottawa County Sheriff's Office said.

The truck was westbound on the state route at about 1:30 p.m. when the malfunction occurred. The truck then veered, blew a left tire, and overturned. There were no injuries, sheriff's deputies said.

Traffic in both directions resumed about 3 p.m., deputies said.
