GREGORY (Kiii News) -

A dump truck turned over at around 11:45 a.m. Friday on Highway 181, near spur 202 in Gregory, spilling all of its contents onto the road.

Police say the driver of the truck was traveling too fast and had an oversized load.

"The weight, when it came around, it kind of shifted and it caused the accident, and the unsafe speed," Gregory Police Chief Jesse Garcia said.

Fortunately, the driver was uninjured. A local recycling company volunteered their services and equipment to help clean up the mess.
