Trucker cited for hauling 36 foot wide shed without permit


A truck driver landed himself in hot water earlier this month when he got caught hauling what is definitely an oversized load without the proper permits or an escort vehicle.

Earlier this month, a sheriff’s deputy in Minnesota spotted a truck hauling a very wide shed and decided that something might be amiss.

From the Minnesota State Patrol:

“If you looked up the definition of “oversized load” in the dictionary, you’d see this picture.

A Pennington County sheriff’s deputy stopped this truck Nov. 19 on Center Avenue North just west of Thief River Falls. The deputy asked for a trooper to come to the scene to help navigate commercial vehicle laws.

The truck was hauling a 36-foot wide shed without proper permits or an escort vehicle. The trooper cited the driver for various violations.

Many Facebook users chimed in on the Minnesota State Patrol’s Facebook post about the supersized load.
