After being treated at the scene by firefighters, the driver of an overturned dump truck was taken by ambulance to the Saint John Regional Hospital with injuries.

The vehicle veered off the road, and was empty when it rolled over, landing on the driver's side along the shoulder of Highway 1, westbound near kilometre 76. 

Both the Musquash Fire Department and Blacks Harbour Fire Department responding to the rollover and working to contain and diesel fuel leak from the truck. Firefighters spent several hours on the scene, as the dump truck was taken away by a wrecker.

It's the second rollover the Musquash Fire Department has responded to in as many days.
