According to 911 dispatchers, a report of the overturned vehicle between McCord and King roads came in around 4:10 a.m. Police say the gravel truck driver swerved to avoid hitting a vehicle, causing the truck to overturn and slide, eventually hitting a car.

Sylvania City Police shut down the area for four hours to clean up. The accident scene was cleared just before 8 a.m.
