Bad bearings on a wagon caused the vehicle being pulled by a tractor to tip over and spill its load Wednesday afternoon, in Page County. The Sheriff’s Office reports a 2004 John Deere 7920 tractor operated by 33-year old Jay Crom, of Malvern, was traveling west on Highway 2 just east of C Avenue at around 3:40-p.m., when the wheel bearings on a Parker 4-wheel wagon it was pulling failed. The wagon dropped onto the road, turned over onto its side and spilled its load onto the road.

The wagon was totaled during the accident. It was valued at $15,000. The Page County road sustained an estimated $5,000 damage. There were no injuries, and no citations issued.
