Driver of Overturned Cement Truck Ran Stop Sign

An overturned cement truck closed down a stretch of Ranchero Road in Hesperia Saturday morning. According to deputies, the truck driver did not see the stop sign at the intersection of Ranchero Road and Maple Avenue. Another vehicle was traveling south on Maple Avenue approaching the intersection when the truck driver noticed the stop sign. He slammed the brakes and attempted to swerve out of the vehicle’s way, which caused the truck to flip onto its side.

The truck driver sustained minor injuries in the crash. No other vehicles were involved and one else was hurt. The crash happened around 7 a.m. The overturned cement truck was blocking both lanes of Ranchero Road for several hours before the scene was cleared.

Police say the truck driver was unfamiliar with the area and that he was unable to see the stop sign because the sun was in his eyes.

“Being unfamiliar with an area is all the more reason to drive cautiously and pay close attention to traffic signals. Fortunately no one was seriously hurt in this crash,” said Attorney Walter Clark, founder of Walter Clark Legal Group.
