A driver was taken to hospital after a recycling truck tipped over on Nanaimo’s Boxwood Road this afternoon.
Emergency crews were called to the single-vehicle crash at Boxwood and Tulsa roads a little before 4 p.m. Friday, April 30.
Crews said the driver, who reportedly kicked out the windshield to get out of the vehicle, sustained unknown injuries and has been taken to hospital.
The truck was transporting a bin of yard waste, some of which spilled on the side of the road. Boxwood was closed in both directions between Tulsa and Fern roads.
According to ICBC statistics, the incident was the first crash at that intersection since 2018.
