PO­LICE were called to the scene of a truck roll over on the War­rego high­way, 6km east of Du­lacca at 7.30am on Thurs­day.

The driver, who was trans­port­ing chairs and tables to Roma for the up­com­ing Roma races, en­deav­oured to right the truck as it swerved but ul­ti­mately lost con­trol, lead­ing to its up­turn­ing on the em­bank­ment on the side of the high­way head­ing west.

Po­lice re­ported that the one oc­cu­pant of the truck es­caped the in­ci­dent with mi­nor in­juries, and was trans­ported by the Queens­land Ambulance Ser­vice to Miles Hospi­tal for treat­ment of his arm.

Po­lice con­firmed that tests per­formed at the ac­ci­dent site showed that drugs and al­co­hol were not in­volved.

In­ves­ti­ga­tions are con­tin­u­ing, with the truck re­moved from the high­way.


ROLL OVER: The truck over­turned on the steep banks of the War­rego Hwy on Thurs­day morn­ing.
