An accident left a concrete-haulingĀ  truck on on its side along Route 378 in Northampton County Tuesday afternoon

The truck reportedly hit another vehicle from behind, then rolled.

The driver of the truck was being taken to a hospital. No word yet on any other injuries.

One lane is getting by on Route 378, but the road will have to be closed to remove the truck, which is loaded with cement.
