A truck driver heading south on Route 53 took a left turn too quickly onto Arsenal Road Tuesday, causing his dump truck carrying dirt to overturn. No one was injured.

A truck driver working for Primetime Logistics Services in Joliet was cited Tuesday after his dump truck overturned while attempting to turn left from Route 53 onto Arsenal Road, police said.

The accident occurred shortly before 11 a.m. Tuesday.

Hugo Mendez, 23, said he was driving south on Route 53 when he made a left turn too fast onto Arsenal Road, causing his truck to overturn. He refused medical treatment at the scene.

“I’m only bruised up a bit,” said Mendez, who was the only person involved in the accident.

Wilmington Police Sgt. Rick Juster said Mendez received four citations related to the accident, but did not have additional information as of Tuesday afternoon.

Police also responded to a second crash later in the same afternoon just a half-mile north of Arsenal Road on Route 53. A semitrailer overturned, but no one was injured, he said.
