Dump truck rolls over on Route 28; driver OK

Daily Freeman (Kingston, NY) - - FRONT PAGE -

A por­tion of state Route 28 was closed for sev­eral hours Fri­day morn­ing in this town of Olive ham­let af­ter a dump truck rolled onto its side. State po­lice said the ac­ci­dent oc­curred about 7:40 a.m. and that no in­juries were re­ported. Route 28 near the scene was closed un­til about noon, with traf­fic di­verted onto Reser­voir Road and state Route 28A.

A fire depart­ment of­fi­cial at the scene said the dump truck, be­long­ing to the town of Shan­daken, was east­bound when it swerved to avoid a vehicle that pulled in front of it from Black Adler Road. The truck then ran up on an em­bank­ment and top­pled to its left, land­ing on its driver’s side.

State po­lice con­firmed the truck be­longed to the town of Shan­daken but did not iden­tify its driver or the driver of the other vehicle. A re­porter’s call to the Shan­daken Town Hall on Fri­day was not an­swered.
