Driver Cited After Apparently Overturning Cement Truck In Lewes

Posted: Updated:

LEWES, Del. - A truck driver was cited in Wednesday morning, after apparently tipping over his vehicle in the roadway.

Delaware State Police say around 8:00 AM, 31-year-old Edwin Figueroa-Maldonado, of Dover, was driving a fully loaded 2001 International Cement Mixer, on Kings Highway, when he tried to turn onto Gills Neck Road. According to the report, during the sharp turn, the mixer shifted, which caused the truck to overturn and land in both lanes of Gills Neck Road.

Figueroa-Maldonado was reportedly wearing a seat belt, and was apparently slightly injured in the incident. He was treated at Beebe Medical Center, and later released. Troopers say Figueroa-Maldonado was cited for careless driving.

Gills Neck Road at Kings Highway was closed for around two hours, while the crash was investigated and cleared, according to the report.
