    Semi-truck hauling cookies overturns

    Semi-truck hauling cookies overturns
    1/9/08
    Topeka Capital Journal (subscription), KS
    PERRY The spirits of some consumers and young vendors might have been crushed, not to mention the cargo, when a tractor-trailer truck hauling a load of Girl Scout Cookies overturned Tuesday morning in Jefferson County.
    The Kansas Highway Patrol said James W. Tangard, 54, of Danville, Ky., was driving a 2005 Freightliner west on US-24 highway when the rig overturned just east of the US-24/US-59 intersection. The KHP accident report said the truck was going too fast for conditions and failed to negotiate a curve in the road.
    Tangard, who was wearing a seat belt, was reported injured and was transported to a Topeka hospital, where he was treated and released.
    Kansas Agriculture Department spokeswoman Lisa Taylor said the trailer remained intact, and that the cookies were in their individual boxes packed inside larger cartons.
    She said inspectors were planning today to inspect the cookies to be sure they are safe to eat.
    The accident occurred about 9:45 a.m.
