EAST WILLIAMSON – A Delbarton man escaped serious injury after a single vehicle accident around 2:30 p.m. on Monday afternoon on U.S. 52 near Duba’s Wrecker Service in East Williamson.
According to Sgt. John Hall of the Williamson Police Department, Chester Lee Gillman, 78 years old of Delbarton, W.Va. was driving south when he dropped off the edge of the road and into the gravel, lost control of his older model blue Ford Ranger and it flipped upside down.
The truck was loaded with feed corn and groceries and the weight shifted and apparently contributed to Gillman losing control of the truck.
Other than a few scratches, Gillman walked away from the accident.
Besides Sgt. Hall, patrolman Bert Gibson was also at the scene of the accident.
The Williamson Fire Department also responded to the wreck with a pumper truck. Chief Joey Carey and several other firefighters responded and helped with traffic control and debris removal. There were groceries scattered along the roadway where the truck turned over.
Duba’s Wrecker Service flipped the truck back on its wheels and towed it to their lot.
