A dump truck overturned Wednesday in the Greenwood area after the driver tried to avoid hitting another vehicle.
The driver around 1 p.m. Wednesday swerved the northbound dump truck out of the way of a southbound vehicle straddling the yellow line in the 1700 block of Arkansas 253. The truck flipped and spilled gravel into the section of road when the driver overcorrected after swerving out of the way, Capt. Eugene Hamelman with the Excelsior Fire Department said.
Sebastian County Emergency Medical Services personnel transported the driver to a hospital following the incident. The driver left the area after the truck overturned, Hamelman said.
Officials with the Fire Department, EMS, Sebastian County Sheriff's Office, Arkansas State Police, Arkansas Highway Police, Hackett Police Department and Greenwood Police Department responded to the scene. They blocked off the section of road where the incident occurred through 2 p.m. Wednesday.
