A man was taken to hospital Monday afternoon after the rock truck he was driving rolled down an embankment in Penticton.
Around 4 p.m. the driver of the loaded rock truck was preparing to dump his final load of the day when the truck stalled on a small hill and began to roll backwards.
Still stalled, the truck gained momentum and tumbled down a small embankment coming to rest with the cab keeled over on its side.
Cpl Chris Richardson with the Penticton RCMP said the driver looked stable but was taken by ambulance to Penticton General Hospital to be safe.
Vice president of Skaha Hills Curt Jansen said the driver was working on the housing part of the development, which also includes a winery.
Chris Gibbons, general manager of Westhills Aggregates said his first concern was to determine that everybody was alright.
The workers compensation board was coming to do an investigation. It was not clear when WCB would be onsite and whether that would slow the project down.
Mike Courtney who was fuelling equipment higher up the site when the accident happened said digging might be slowed in the area due to the inspection and removal of the truck.
