Truck driver dies when cement truck overturns

Accident occurred in La Honda

A 62-year-old Dublin man driving a fully loaded cement truck died Wednesday, Oct. 12, when his truck overturned on Roquena Drive at Esmeralda Terrace in La Honda west of Skyline Drive, according to a report from the California Highway Patrol.

With 20 tons of cement on board, the truck fell off the road and overturned into a creek bed at about 8:45 a.m., CHP Officer Art Montiel said in a report.

The cab came to rest on the creek bank and was crushed. In the effort to extricate the driver, medics worked all day with the assistance of two big-rig tow trucks, Mr. Montiel said.

Investigators are looking into the cause of the accident, including whether drugs or alcohol were involved, Mr. Montiel said.

The CHP asks that witnesses call Officer J. Lofstrom at 369-6261.
