Commuters traveling along Cockrells Run in Lucasville have had two days of delays resulting from a mobile home left blocking one lane of traffic.
Tausha Shreck, of Lucasville, explained that her daughter got off work at 4 p.m., Monday and immediately called her to warn of the trailer. By 6:44 p.m., when Shreck was traveling home, she expected the trailer to be gone. However, as she reached the top of the hill at 961 Cockrells Run, she noticed that the trailer was still there unmoved.
“There was no flagger or anything,” she explained.
Shreck stated that when she arrived at the scene, a moving truck bearing the name of Green Mobile Home Transport in Lucasville. She commented that as she neared the mobile home, workers got in the truck and left. She could see clearly that the mobile home was missing an axle. When she headed out for work the next morning, the trailer was still on the road, and there was no moving company in sight.
“It’s an accident waiting to happen,” she stated. “I don’t know how you can leave a trailer on the side of the road and not do anything about it. There’s a lot of traffic on that road.”
She added that traffic has been backed up heading both directions and that drivers need to be careful passing around the mobile home.
As of 5 p.m. Tuesday, the road blockage was still in place.
Scioto County Sheriff’s Office said they were unaware of the issue. Calls to Green Mobile Home were unanswered as of press time.
