Concrete mixer overturns at construction site in Pitt County

PITT COUNTY, NC (WITN) - A fully loaded concrete mixer flipped over this morning in one Eastern Carolina county.

The Highway Patrol is investigating the 8:00 a.m. crash on Beddard Road, outside of Simpson.

Troopers say the truck was turning into a driveway at a new construction site when it missed the driveway and overturned. The woman driving the mixer was taken to Vidant Medical Center with unknown injuries.

The mixer landed against a utility pole and just inches from a portable toilet.

A GUC crew is there to turn off the power so two wreckers can try to lift up the truck back onto four wheels.

No word yet on charges against the driver.
