The truck could be seen lying on the side of the road. Police said the truck got out of the way, slid on the grass before rolling on its roof and stopped.

On Tuesday afternoon police said the driver of the truck, a 50-year-old man, was taken to a hospital with serious, life-threatening injuries. The passengers of the truck – a 37-year-old man, a 23-year-old man and an 18-year-old – sustained minor injuries.
