Dump truck rollover

One man is in hospital after losing control of his dump truck and flipping near Westside Road Wednesday morning.

The truck rolled on Bear Lake Main Road just after 8:00 a.m. with multiple police, fire and ambulance personnel attending.

“A dump truck overturned while coming down the road towards Westside Road, spilling its cargo,” says Cst. Jon Doan.

The truck landed on the driver’s side door and contents of the vehicle were found scattered around the road.

Doan says the driver has non-life threatening injuries and has been taken to hospital for assessment.

RCMP are now working to determine what caused the accident and whether speed was a factor.
