The accident, which happened just before 2 p.m., briefly shut down lanes in both directions on the interstate at Harrison Avenue and caused traffic delays.

Stallings was charged with a load securement violation. The driver, John Clark, was charged with a lane violation.

    Half the work vans and trucks on the roads here should be charged with load securement violations...they're an accident waiting to happen.
