WARRENTON — A concrete truck overturned on Doryman Lane in Warrenton about 8 a.m. Wednesday morning. No other vehicles were involved in the incident.

Oregon State Police received a call at 7:57 a.m. that the truck was on its side after taking a sharp turn onto Doryman Lane off of Highway 101. The driver did not require medical services, Gearhart Fire Chief Bill Eddy said.

Oregon Department of Transportation responded to the incident to clean up about five gallons of diesel that leaked, and cleared the scene around 9 a.m., ODOT representative Lou Torres said.

A-1 Ready Mix, the concrete company which owns the truck, is in the process of towing the truck before the concrete inside hardens.

Highway 101 is to remain open, Torres said.
