JACKSON, Wyo. (AP) - No one was hurt and no cargo spilled when a truck hauling potatoes went out of control heading down the steep grade at Teton Pass in northwest Wyoming and flipped on its side.

The accident happened around 8 p.m. Tuesday after the truck’s brakes failed on Wyoming 22, the Jackson Hole News & Guide (https://bit.ly/2ffHBhX ) reported.

It wasn’t immediately known how fast the truck was going or the weight of the load of potatoes being hauled.

Jackson Hole Fire Capt. Lily Mohler says semitrailers should not be driven on the pass between Jackson with Victor, Idaho.

“But it’s a common route for potato trucks,” Mohler said.

No potatoes spilled in the accident.

“There have been lots of potatoes on this road, but we don’t see any potatoes around the scene,” Mohler said.
