Big Water Truck Crash

That one-vehicle truck crash in Big Water yesterday was apparently caused by the driver of the semi-tractor trailer falling asleep at the wheel.

That’s according to Sgt. Heaton with the Utah Highway Patrol concerning the 4:30 A.M. crash on Tuesday.

Near mile marker 7, and just south of The Big Water Visitor Center and Dinosaur Museum, the truck went off the right side of the roadway, through a guardrail and flipped onto its side.

The driver, who was hauling Coca-Cola products, was able to climb out of the overturned cab, and was walking around when emergency crews showed-up minutes later. He was taken to Page Hospital, with injuries that were not considered life-threatening.

According to Sgt. Heaton the clean-up of the mess was still continuing on Wednesday.
