62-year-old Peck man killed in semi accident

A 62-year-old Peck man was killed in the rollover of a semi in Bonner County Saturday afternoon at 1:14, according to Idaho State Police.

John M. Moody, Peck, was driving a 2010 Peterbilt semi tractor northbound near mile post 460 on U.S. Highway 95, between Sandpoint and Athol, when the truck drifted off the roadway onto the right shoulder causing the tractor and trailer to overturn. He was killed and 500 gallons of Ammonium Nitrate (liquid fertilizer) leaked from the trailer. The highway was closed as a result for the scene to become safe and secure.

The highway was closed for seven hours, but has now re-opened.

The next of kin has been notified.
