Dump truck topples over causing delays on 290, SH130

Crews working to clear a rollover crash involving a dump truck at 290/130.

AUSTIN (KXAN) — A dump truck has rolled over on westbound US 290 and SH130 causing heavy traffic delays for morning commuters.

The dump truck was the only vehicle involved in the crash, which has closed one lane of the westbound US 290 service road and two lanes of 130. The driver crashed while making a left turn onto 290 when the top-heavy load toppled over onto the shoulder. Police say the cement boulders may have been improperly loaded.

The crash happened around 7 a.m. No one was hurt.

Police said it would take approximately one hour to clear the crash out of the road, but it is still blocking lanes of traffic at this time.
