Details about the Dump Truck Accident

CBS Local Miami is reporting that a truck driver was transported to the hospital via ambulance after an accident that happened along the highway in west Broward.

According to the authorities, the dump truck somehow lost control on US Highway 27 near mile marker 43 and went off the roadway. A video of the accident depicts the truck stuck in the mud on the side of the roadway.

The driver of the truck was then trapped inside the vehicle, and, according to the Broward Sheriff’s Office, the man had to be air lifted to the hospital.

At this point, there are no further details about the extent of the injuries the man suffered in the accident.

Police are currently conducting an investigation into the circumstances of the accident that may have contributed to the loss of control that caused the truck to veer off the roadway.
