The driver of this large dump truck that crashed Friday afternoon was taken to Cumberland Medical Center by ambulance. The wreck occurred on Fall Creek Rd. off Hwy. 70 E in the Ozone community when the truck traveling a narrow and winding county road went out of control on a curvy downgrade and rolled over. The load of gravel is credited by firefighters at the scene for stopping the truck and its driver from traveling over a drop-off and possibly into a house about 50 yards below. The Tennessee Highway Patrol was called to the scene to investigate the crash.
