A Washington, Mo., man was cited for an improper turn after the tractor-trailer he was driving allegedly knocked over two traffic signals Monday afternoon at Eighth and State.

The Quincy Police Department said 2015 International Fleet driven by Robert W. Dion, 48, was heading north on Eighth Street at 1:16 p.m. Monday when it made a very wide left turn onto State. The tractor-trailer went off the road on the northwest corner and collided with the two traffic signals, knocking them down.

Dion left the scene but was located later, authorities said.
