Dump Truck Overturns Spilling Load

A dump truck carrying gravel overturned Tuesday morning near Clayton.   The driver was traveling on Gordon Road off Highway 70 around 10:00AM when the truck overturned on its side, spilling the load.

A pickup truck headed in the opposition direction on Gordon Road avoided being hit by the dump truck but was damaged by the flying gravel.

No injuries were reported.  The roadway was closed just about two hours before reopening.

The NC Highway Patrol investigated the crash.  Charges are pending.
