At least two dump trucks overturned in Johnston County, Monday morning.
One truck was on its side in the Princeton area, and this truck was overturned on Covered Bridge Road near City Road in Clayton.
The uninjured Clayton area truck driver said that he did all he could do to avoid striking an oncoming car and chose to “hit the ditch” instead of being slung across the roadway into an oncoming car.
The truck driver reported that the driver of the car actually stopped to “thank” him for avoiding the collision.
Covered Bridge Road was shut down for several hours following the accident. Clayton Fire, EMS and Police handled the Clayton accident.
