Truck flips on rural road

April 6, 2004

Baker County-- A truck driver was trapped in his cab and his load littered a roadside after he took a turn too fast.

Costello Buie was turning right onto Highway 37 from Clear Lake Road in Baker County. He lost control of the truck, and it flipped in the middle of the highway.

"Luckily, no cars were coming. The load shifted on his vehicle, causing his tractor trailer to turn over," said State Trooper Scott McClure.

It didn't take rescue workers long to pull the Buie from the overturned down cab. The trailer was full of freshly-cut timber that ended up on the side of the road.

Buie was treated at Phoebe Putney where he was treated and released.
