Gravel truck turns over just off I-530


A truck driver hauling gravel was taken Monday morning to Jefferson Regional Medical Center after he lost control of the truck he was driving while rounding a curve just off Interstate 530 and the truck turned over.

Trooper Ryan Felton said Robert Lunsford, 40, of Star City had taken exit 35 and was unable to negotiate the curve and the truck flipped over against the guardrail, spilling gravel onto the highway.

The accident was reported at 8:33 a.m. and Felton said the Arkansas Highway Police were also looking into the accident.

Lunsford’s injuries were not believed to be serious.
