The driver of this cement truck was lucky to escape with just a few scratches and managed to climb out of the cab by himself.
The accident happened this afternoon, and the police were out to organize the traffic.

Oh, my. And, if there is concrete in the mixer, it's not being mixed. That will be a mess to clean out....

Sad event, but nice photo catch.

I'm guessing it will be tricky to remove all that concrete from the mixer. Nice news photo Gunn.

He's lucky he didn't get buried in cement! Yikes!

That is a one of those perfect timing shots.

Well caught! Good to know that the driver is OK... I hope the truck was empty!

WOW! Glad no one got really hurt. Great capture, Gunn!

Hi Gunn! Thanks so much for your comment on Ocala! You are right on. Unfortunately, we have a lot of stupid people here, and a lot of them got elected to governmental positions recently and that makes Obama's job much harder!

One can't help wonder how this truck overturned...there aren't any barriers or other road problems it seems. Probably tried to negotiate a turn going too fast!

Love the photo! Maybe you should work for your local newspaper!

Well, the main is that nobody got hurt...
For the rest: when you see such thing, you have to photograph it!

That looks like a bad accident. It is always very difficult to control these big trucks!
