A driver of a triaxle truck hauling silt received minor injuries when the truck rolled onto its side and lost its load on Route 902 in Mahoning Township this morning.
Mike Barna, 39, of Freeland, who drives for Franzosa Trucking, Hazelton, was taking a load of silt to Northampton, when the truck overturned as he struck the berm.
"I lost my brakes and I did what I could," said Barna.
The smell of burning brakes was heavy in the air as emergency responders entered the scene.
The large truck lay on its side with most of the load of silt spilled from the truck.
