A tractor-trailer carrying manure capsized Friday in the village of Panama.
At 7:45 p.m., the Panama Fire Department was called to the scene of an incident near the intersection of Cherry Hill and Kortwright roads in Panama.
According to Assistant Chief Phil Johnson of the Panama Fire Department, a semi hauling manure became dislocated from its trailer and the trailer subsequently rolled to the side of the road and capsized. Upon capsizing, much of the load spilled onto the ground, however the manure was not considered harmful.

At approximately 9:30, Dyke's Garage of Bear Lake, Pa. arrived to help right the capsized trailer.
No one was injured during the accident. The road, along with a county route sign, were moderately damaged as a result of the accident.
