A 44-TON lorry tipped on its side on a busy Oswestry roundabout, causing delays to motorists travelling in the area.
The incident happened at around 10.35am on Wednesday, September 18 when the lorry and loaded trailer tipped on its side on the Gobowen roundabout while travelling south on the A5.
Fire crews attended the incident to ensure the lorry was safe and police diverted traffic heading towards the roundabout on the B5069 from Gobowen.
Driver of the lorry Stuart Russell said: “When I set off this morning the lorry wasn’t feeling right and didn’t seem like it was driving properly. I approached the roundabout and took it slowly, but I could see the three axles twisting and it went over.”
Mr Russell said he was shaken by the incident, but only received minor cuts to his hands.
He was transporting timber for Draper Distribution from St Helens to a site in Hereford when the lorry tipped over.
Richard Ewels, spokesman for West Mercia Police, said: “We were notifed at 10.35am that an articulated lorry overturned on the Orthopaedic Hospital roundabout.
“The driver was uninjured. The road remained open, but was due to be closed later this afternoon while the vehicle was removed and some disruption was expected.”
