Earlier this morning, a large camping trailer detached from the 2007 gold Chevy SUV lugging it in the northbound lanes of Interstate 275 near the Kennedy Boulevard exit, Kraus said. The SUV driver, 57-year-old Richard Earl Wery, apparently swerved to avoid hitting a ladder that had fallen off another truck, Kraus said. The camper jackknifed, struck the barrier wall and blocked three lanes of traffic for nearly an hour.
