Traveler crushed to death after truck topples along hill
An unidentified man was crushed to death yesterday afternoon after a truck in which he was hitching a ride overturned on a hill in Region Eight.
Mark Grimmond, the owner of the vehicle, said his truck was headed to Olive Creek, Region Eight, when it overturned on a hill. He said the driver of the truck related to him that he had lost control of the vehicle while going up a hill and it overturned. The accident occurred around 2pm.
Grimmond said the ill-fated passenger had stopped the truck along the trail and asked for a ride.
He then jumped into the tray of the vehicle and was subsequently pinned under the truck after it overturned.
The truck was carrying fuel and groceries into the interior location.
