Gravel Truck Overturns Near Marymount University

A large truck carrying gravel overturned just north of Marymount University this afternoon.

The incident happened around 12:30 p.m. at the intersection of N. Abingdon Street and 34th Steet N. It’s unclear what led to the accident, which resulted in the truck tipping over onto its side, partially on the front yard of a house. It appears that the truck trailer was in the dumping position when it overturned — a load of gravel could be seen on the street behind it.

The driver of the truck was evaluated at the scene by paramedics for back pain. Two heavy duty tow trucks were called in to try to upright the truck and haul it away.
