NEW KENT – A truck plowing Cosby Mill Road in New Kent County overturned this morning.

Shortly before 11 a.m., Virginia State Police Trooper A. Doss Jr. was called to the scene of a single vehicle crash in the 11700 block of Route 638, Cosby Mill Road, in New Kent County. 

The crash occurred after the right rear tires of a 2000 GMC C7500 truck came off of the right edge of the roadway causing the truck to slide into a ditch and overturn onto the passenger side. 

The driver of the truck, a 34 year-old male from New Kent, who was wearing his safety belt, suffered minor injuries in the crash. 

At the time of the crash, the driver was plowing the southbound lane of Route 638.  The truck was also loaded with sand and salt. 

Speed is not a factor in the on-going crash investigation.
