Driver dies in truck roll-over

A semi tractor-trailer driver was killed in a roll-over accident last Friday, Aug. 27, on 110th Street east of Raeville, NE.

The 4:20 p.m. accident claimed the life of Gerald Lesko, 46, of Brodhead, WI, who was pronounced dead at the scene, according to the Boone County Sheriff’s Department.

Lesko had delivered equipment to the Laredo Ridge Wind Farm and was driving a 1988 Peterbilt tractor-trailer westbound on 110th Street when he apparently lost control. The vehicle flipped into the south ditch. Lesko was apparently not wearing a seatbelt at the time of the accident, the Sheriff’s Department reported.

The semi, owned by Glen Strickland American Transportation Inc., Pittsburgh, PA, was a total loss.
