Truckie escapes rollover

A TRUCKIE had a lucky escape early yesterday morning when his B-double truck rolled on its side just outside Grafton.

South Grafton Fire Brigade captain Dennis Pye said emergency services were called to the scene near Alipou Creek on the Pacific Highway, south of Grafton about 4.50am, after the northbound truck – apparently experiencing difficulties on the side of the road – had flipped on its side, blocking part of the highway.

The highway was blocked until about 10am, while crews worked to right the truck and clear debris from the road.
