Trucker Charged After Log Truck Accident

A trucker has been charged after his log truck overturned in Onslow County.

No one was hurt in the noon accident on Mattocks Road, outside of Maysville.

Troopers say the driver slipped off a makeshift logging road, and overturned his trailer, spilling the load.

Mattocks Road was closed between Spring Hill Road and Hadley Collins Road.

Joseph Pompey was charged with unsafe movement and no license.

The truck is owned by Adam Morton Trucking & Construction of Jacksonville.

The highway reopened an hour later.
