A driver walked away after a 40 tonne cement truck carrying cement flipped over into a ditch at Barlow Road and Jone's Road in Cramahe Township east of Castleton on Tuesday.

Two heavy tow trucks were called to the scene and first had to empty out as much of the cement as possible by flushing it out with a hose before trying to right the cement truck. Several hours later the truck was righted but suffered major damage.
