    Cement truck rolled over. Had 5-6 yards of cement on it. Driver was hurt but apparently is going to be ok.

    It was here in my neck of the woods, in East Machias. Truck lost control coming around a corner onto the bridge.

    It sounds as though he is expected to recover. May be a long road though.

    Sargent's is a pretty good size company.

    That's good. He still could end up with back problems or other problems. I hope he can recover fully.

    that sucks everytime you see one tipped

    cement trucks tipping is not that uncommon. They have a high center of gravity and if they have a hot load in them somtimes it will stick to the side of the drum and carry up the side. If it is all timed correct while in a turn, the truck dumps on it's side.

    Glad to here the diver will recover.

    Lucky it did not land on a car. I saw one tipped over once, that's a lot of weight spinning around in that drum.

    In the 4th pic it looks like that little ramp truck is pulling it upright. Must have one hell of a winch on that thing.

    Thats not surprising for a Sargent Corp. truck.. The old Paving company i worked for did alot of paving for them 2 years ago for a big job in Manchester NH and that year they had 2 trucks roll over and 3 got into accidents..
