Dump truck gets dumped Print E-mail

Dump truck overturns on Highway 12

     A dump truck belonging to Giese Paving and Excavation of Lewiston tipped over last week while traveling eastbound on Highway 12. The accident occurred July 16 around 5:30 p.m.

     According to the Idaho State Police, 47-year-old Jack Stewart was hauling a load of asphalt on Highway 12 near milepost 59 when the right tires left the paved portion of the road and headed toward a rock outcropping. Stewart overcorrected and went left of center and left the highway and drove into a gravel pullout, according to the ISP. The truck then slid sideways in the gravel and overturned onto its left side, spilling its load.

     Stewart believes he may have blown a tire prior to the accident. However, a witness following the truck made no mention of any equipment failure, according to the ISP.

     Stewart received non-life threatening injuries. No citations were issued.
