Tractor Trailer Rollover on Vestal Parkway

Police say speed was the factor in a tractor-trailer rollover which trapped the driver on the Vestal Parkway Tuesday morning.

It happened just after 9:00am Tuesday morning. Police say the truck from the Lopke Rock Products Company was exiting the ramp from Route 26 to go onto Route 434 East.

But police say speed shifted the load of sand, causing it to spill across the parkway. The driver was taken out of the truck and was uninjured.

"It appears it was speed not reasonable for the turn he was trying to make. The load shifted and ended up over turning the tractor-trailer. The load ended up dumping across both lanes of the Parkway. We had to shut it down for quite a while," said Vestal Police Sargeant Scott Mullins.

Authorities reopened one lane of traffic on the eastbound side of the parkway at about 10am.
