Evidence at the scene showed that the truck was traveling South on Highway 7 when the driver failed to stop at the stop sign, crossed Highway 5, struck the guardrail, exited the pavement, traveled down a steep embankment and crashed into the creek.

Fountain Lake Fire & Rescue Troops arrived quickly.  They were able to determined that the driver (the only occupant of the vehicle) was not injured.

Tillery’s Towing was called to the scene to recover the truck.  Tillery’s sent “Hoss”, the heavy wrecker.  Hoss pulled the truck up the embankment and back to civilization.  Then, removed it from the scene.

The truck had just emptied it’s cargo up at Hot Springs Village and was empty at the time of the crash.

Traffic flow was interrupted for approximately 1.5 hours.
