Semi Runs Off Road Near Wayne-Duplin County Line

Friday evening, Pricetown firefighters were dispatched to the scene of a single vehicle rollover accident on Bennetts Bridge Road near the Wayne-Duplin County Line.  The responding firefighters discovered an 18-wheeler had run off the road and overturned onto its side in a ditch.  The truck, belonging to Kennedy Trucking Company, was apparently heading north on Bennetts Bridge Road when it ran off the right shoulder of the roadway, hit the soft dirt in the ditch and overturned, causing very minimal damage to the truck and trailer.  The driver of the 18-wheeler was not hurt in the accident.  The road had to be shut down, and Pricetown and Pleasant Grove firefighters set up traffic control around the site while the truck was uprighted by several large wreckers.  The driver was cited by the State Highway Patrol for Failure to Maintain Lane Control.
