Dumptruck Rolls Over, Starts Small Grass Fire After Blowout

A blowout caused a dump truck to overturn around 2:30 p.m. Friday on 665 near Petronila.

According to Nieces County Sheriff's Department officials, the front-left tire of the truck blew out, sending it off road and into a ditch. That caused the truck to rollover, striking a telephone and sparking a small grass fire in the process.

The fire was quickly extinguished, and fortunately, the driver of the truck was not injured.
