Semi Flips In Westbank
A semi driver is lucky to be alive after flipping his fully-loaded rig in downtown Westbank.
The crash happened early Friday morning as the truck was rounding a curve approaching Gellatly Rd.
Police say the truck was rounding the curve when the driver lost control and flipped on its side before smashing into a utility pole. The driver's compartment was heavily damaged but the driver, said to be in his late 40's, walked away from the wreck.
The truck was loaded with household appliances and heavy-duty wiring. Most of the cargo ended up spilling down the side of a hill next to the highway.
Police suspect the truck's load might have shifted while rounding the curve -- causing it to overturn.
