(UPDATE 3:40 p.m.): The Loxley Police Department confirmed to WKRG News 5 that a Baldwin County sewer dump truck overturned on Highway 90 Westbound after the car in front “abruptly stopped” when turning into a subdivision. This happened Wednesday morning.
“The dump truck was not able to stop in time, which then the driver veered off the road to avoid hitting the stopped vehicle,” according to LPD.
The truck was full of what Loxley Police said was sludge from nearby sewers in Baldwin County. Highway 90 was cleared and all lanes are open.
LOXLEY, Ala. (WKRG) — A dump truck overturned on Highway 90 between Greenwood Cemetery Road and County Road 66 Wednesday morning.
The crash happened around 11:45 a.m. Monday, July 20, causing all lanes on Highway 90 to be completely shut down. Drivers were asked to use Greenwood Cemetery Road as a detour.
The Loxley Police Department is still investigating what exactly caused the dump truck to overturn and this is still an ongoing investigation.
Loxley Police believe the driver veered off the road, where there is a small drop-off, causing the back of the truck to turnover. The truck was full of dirt and ALDOT was on scene cleaning up the spill.
No one was injured and the driver of the truck was unharmed, according to police.
