A cement mixer truck overturned Thursday afternoon, blocking N.C. 115 in the Broadway community for several hours just south of the entrance to the Lynnwoode development.

Charles Stanley Spicer, 48, of East Bend, driver of a 1996 Mack truck owned by Carl Rose and Sons Ready-Mix Concrete, was taken to Wilkes Medical Center by Wilkes Emergency Medical Services, said Trooper B.W. Pettit of the N.C. Highway Patrol. The Broadway Fire Department assisted.

The concrete mixer was parked, facing south, when the soft shoulder of the road gave way and the concrete mixer overturned into a ditch, Pettit said. The truck came to rest on its top.

No charges were filed in the incident, which happened around 2:25 p.m.

Pettit estimated damage to the truck at $6,000.
