Commercial trucking accidents are generally among the worst kinds of crashes, and they typically yield the most severe injuries. Early this morning, shortly before 9:00 am, a dump truck overturned and shut down a lengthy section of Camp Horne Road in Allegheny County. The accident took place in the 600 block between Route 65 and the Parkway North in Ohio Township.
According to Allegheny County police, the crash that happened left a dump truck apparently leaking potentially dangerous fluids. A hazardous waste crew was called to the scene to deal with the spill and safely discard any hazardous materials. Authorities have said that it is unclear if the driver of the truck suffered any serious physical damages, although catastrophic injuries are not uncommon in these types of wrecks. There is also no word yet as to whether or not the dump truck driver was the only one involved in the crash.
