A cement truck driver from Lawrence County was killed Tuesday afternoon in a crash in Mercer County.

James A. Minteer, 51, of New Castle died in the crash that occurred when the cement truck went off the roadway around 1:30 p.m. as he was rounding a curve along Route 318 in East Lackawannock Township, state police said.

The truck hit a culvert, bounced back onto the roadway and overturned, police said. The truck slid down both eastbound and westbound lanes before hitting a car and spinning around before finally coming to rest, troopers said.

The driver of the car suffered minor injuries; his passenger was not hurt.
