Trailer truck rolls over at Kruythoff roundabout

St. Maarten – A trailer truck transporting a container for Tropical Shipping rolled over at the Kruythoff roundabout in Cole Bay yesterday around one o’clock. Police Inspector Ricardo Henson said that the driver apparently did not shift down soon enough coming down the hill and that he had approached the roundabout at too high a speed. The driver was stuck for a long time in his mangled cabin. After the fire department managed to free him, he was taken by ambulance to the St. Maarten Medical Center. “His injuries did not seem to be life-threatening,” Henson said.

Heavy equipment was brought in to put the trailer back on its wheels and to pick up the container. The traffic was blocked for more than two hours in all directions. No other cars were damaged in the accident.
