The truck was heading toward Highway 22 when it rolled over taking out a utility pole and bringing down several power lines. The truck landed upright in a driveway.

The accident caused multiple power outages in the area. The power company was called to repair the pole and the lines. That section of Ray’s Bridge Road had to be closed.
