This was one of two 18-wheelers that was hauling heavy equipment. Both big-rigs had to make a 90 degree turn in downtown Newton to continue westbound on Highway 190.

Slow and steady was the pace on Monday as a pair of heavy haulers took a tight turn in downtown Newton. The 18-wheelers were hauling what appeared to be equipment used in the petrochemical industry. As they approached the 90 degree left turn at the Courthouse Square to continue westbound on Highway 190, other drivers were very cooperative and gave them plenty of room to maneuver the tight corner.
