MANCHESTER – A dump truck dumped 24 tons of sand on an Ocean County road when the driver lost control on Wednesday morning.
Driver Erick Castro-Perez, 50, was driving on Pasadena Road near the Burlington County line just after 8 a.m. and drifted onto the shoulder of the road, Manchester Police said.
The truck returned to the road in the southbound lanes and tipped over, dumping sand.
The Ocean County Roads Department helped clean up the sand from the pavement which was closed for several hours. Pasadena Road passes through a wooded area between routes 72 and 70.
Police said driver error appeared to be the main cause of the rollover, but no charges were laid.
Perez was taken to Toms River Community Medical Center for treatment of minor injuries.
