Truck laden with blocks goes off curve down embankment, takes parked car with it

Truck laden with blocks goes off curve down embankment, takes parked car with it

At just after noon today, Nov. 29, 2013, the sounds of the ambulance and later, search and rescue and the police rushed past Cudjoe Head to the news that there had been a rather serious truck accident on the church corner in St. Peters.

Early reports suggest that the truck laden with building blocks travelling downhill in southerly direction, developed control difficulties with speed, causing the truck to first collide with an oncoming pickup on the corner and careening over the embankment of the church lawn below the road, carrying with it a car that was parked off the road on the corner.

Both occupants of the truck ambulanced off to the hospital with the man seated on the passenger side suffering from what appeared to our source as having serious head injuries. Last news was that the driver was released from the hospital.

The police who said they are investigating the accident, can be seen in the photos here, gathering scene evidence.
