Bartenna J. Lumpkin, 43, of White Springs, received minor injuries when the 1999 Mack semi-truck he was driving overturned on Tuesday, Jan. 2, according to a Florida Highway Patrol press release. Lumpkin was driving the truck loaded with rock south on CR 231 in Alachua County when the right rear tires went off the west shoulder of the road. He attempted to correct the truck’s movement but lost control.

The truck began rotating counter-clockwise and then overturned, ejecting Lumpkin through the windshield, the report states. He landed in the southbound lane of the road.

The truck then slid off the east shoulder of the road and stopped facing in an easterly direction, according to the report. When the truck overturned, the load of small rocks it was carrying was scattered in the road. The road was closed approximately two hours while crews cleaned debris from the roadway.

Lumpkin was transported by ambulance to Shands at UF with minor injuries, the report states.

The truck was owned by Mid-Florida Hauling, which used their own equipment to remove the truck from the road, according to the report. Damage to the truck was estimated at $10,000.
