Spill of doggie bones in North Toledo no treat for trucker

It would have been every Toledo dog s day, if anyone had bothered to tell them.

About 8:50 a.m. yesterday, a tractor trailer driven by Robert H. Smith, 56, of Turret Green Drive in Toledo, was turning from eastbound Expressway Drive South to northbound Stickney. The top of the trailer struck two pillars of the I-75 overpass, tearing open part of the roof.

Out spilled part of its dog-friendly cargo 36,000 pounds of Milk Bones and other doggie treats.

The trailer had to be unloaded by hand before it could be righted and towed away. That took more than six hours.

Police cited Mr. Smith for reckless operation.
