Driver injured as rig overturns

A Wisconsin man failed to stop at the top of a summit on Route 40 before the tractor-trailer he was driving downhill overturned, according to state police at Uniontown.

Tyrone Davis, 44, of Milwaukee, was traveling west in North Union when he lost control of the rig, struck a barrier and overturned about 4:35 p.m. Saturday, police said.

Davis was speeding, according to police. Truckers are required to stop at the summit before starting the steep descent.

Davis was taken to Uniontown Hospital and transferred to a Pittsburgh hospital for treatment. Police did not detail his injuries or name the hospital.

Route 40 in both directions was closed to remove debris and the tractor-trailer, police said. Charges against the driver are pending the results of blood tests. No charges had been filed Sunday afternoon.
