Trailer Upset at Rooney’s


Rooney Feeds Ltd., in Iroquois, was the scene of an unexpected mishap on Wednesday, May 29. About 8:25 a.m., a trailer belonging to Transport Beauregard Inc., out of Saint-Jacques-Le-Mineur, Quebec, was in the process of delivering a load of oats from Lister at Rooney’s loading dock when the trailer tipped over on to its side, snapping the hoist. Following the incident, Rooney’s was able to successfully unload the oats, safely storing the entire cargo by 10:30 a.m. No one was injured in the incident. A representative of Beauregard Inc. estimated the damage to the trailer would probably run to around $45,000. Cornwall Towing and Bill’s Towing and Recovery were called to the scene to salvage the trailer and clear Rooney’s loading area.
