Log Truck Crash at Glengarry

A 23 year-old Cressy man was taken to the Launceston General Hospital with minor injuries after the log truck he was driving rolled at Glengarry this afternoon.

Emergency services were called to the scene on Frankford Rd about 500m west of Glengarry Road at about 3.30pm. The prime mover and log trailer had been travelling east around a sweeping bend when it has tipped onto its side and slid along the roadway. The load of logs spilled from the truck, downing power lines and colliding with a house beside road. No one was in the house at the time of the crash, but the building was extensively damaged.

The crash caused several small spot fires in dry grass on the roadside, with TFS crews attending as well as SES and Ambulance crews. The driver of the truck was treated at the scene before being taken to the LGH by ambulance.

Frankford Rd was blocked for more than four hours while the scene was cleared.

Anyone who witnessed the crash or may have dashcam footage is asked to contact police on 131 444 or Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000 or at crimestopperstas.com.au. Information can be provided anonymously.
