St. Maarten —The driver of a loaded heavy vehicle had a lucky escape yesterday morning when he walked away unscathed after the dump truck rolled down a hill, destroyed the railing and fell into a ditch.

The incident took place at approximately 11.50 a.m. and police, Traffic Department personnel and Paramedics were sent to the crossing of Oyster pond road and Coralita road, in the vicinity of Casa Blancha where the heavily loaded dump truck had fallen into a ditch. “On the scene the investigating officers encountered the driver of the vehicle who did not suffer any injuries but, was still checked out by paramedics. The driver stated that while driving up the hill he encountered mechanical problems with the vehicle causing the vehicle to roll back, destroying the railing and fall into the ditch,” police spokesman inspector Ricardo Henson explained yesterday.
