Yarwun truck rollover

A 48-year old man suffered minor injuries after a truck rolled over near Yarwun this afternoon.

Emergency Services were called to Landing Rd, Yarwun, just before 1pm after a truck and trailer carrying machinery rolled as it negotiated a corner.

It's believed the male driver leapt from his truck as it crashed into the embankment on the corner of Landing and Forest roads, near Cement Australia and QER, in Yarwun.

The truck, that was carrying steel railings, began leaking diesel on impact.

Queensland Ambulance Service said the man sustained minor injuries to his hand and was treated at the scene.

Gladstone Police said they would block Landing Rd later this evening to help assist with the removal of the truck.
