A truck driver in northwestern Minnesota has given new meaning to the term oversized load.
A sheriff’s deputy in Pennington County stopped Gerry Mattison on Nov. 19 for hauling a 36-foot wide shed without proper permits.
Mattison was at the wheel of the flatbed truck and hauling the shed on Center Avenue N. near Thief River Falls when he was stopped, the Minnesota State Patrol said in a Facebook post Thursday.
“If you looked up the definition of ‘oversized load’ in the dictionary, you’d see this picture,” the patrol said in its posting.
Mattison was also cited for not having an escort vehicle and various other violations, according to documents filed in Pennington County District Court.
