Dump truck accident closes road for 2 hours

A trailer carrying a water truck overturned on Duggans Road, off Lime Kiln Road in southern Nevada County, closing the road for two hours Friday afternoon and disrupting school pickup for local students.

Sunny Stephens, 41, of Auburn, was driving the Kenworth dump truck and hauling a flatbed trailer on Lime Kiln Road at about 2 p.m. and was traveling too fast when he tried to turn right on Duggans Road, according to the California Highway Patrol report.

Due to the speed, the flatbed trailer, which was carrying a water truck, fell over and the trailer became detached.



Duggans Road was closed from 3:11 p.m. to 5:16 p.m. so that two heavy-duty tow trucks could remove the vehicles. Durham Transportation was notified and adjusted pickup locations for students from Cottage Hill, Magnolia and Bear River High schools.
