DUMP TRUCK CRASH CLOSES FM 2090

At 2 pm a dump truck loaded with dirt was traveling west on FM 2090 at Morgan Drive. As he rounded the curve there was a lumber truck backing into a construction site and was across both the eastbound and westbound lanes of FM 2090. The driver of the dump truck had little time to react as he tried to go to the ditch and around the front of the lumber truck. He clipped the right front bumper of the lumber truck, went partially into the ditch, and overcorrected causing the dump truck to roll over. The driver who was not wearing a seatbelt suffered extensive road rash to his back and side. He was transported to Kingwood Hospital in a stable condition. Milstead Heavy Duty righted the truck. A load of dirt dammed the leaking fuel so there is minimal hazmat cleanup which will be done by Masters Environmental. Splendora Police are investigating the crash.
