Police say the driver of this truck was “lucky to escape with relatively minor injuries”.

The vehicle overturned on the Scotch Corner roundabout, in North Yorkshire, on Thursday morning.

A post on the North Yorkshire Police Road’s Policing Group (RPG) Facebook page read: “The driver of this truck was lucky to escape with relatively minor injuries when his vehicle overturned on Scotch Corner Roundabout this morning.

“The windscreen of the cab stopped just before the lamppost.”

The age and gender of the driver is unknown.

It is also unknown whether they were taken to hospital for treatment.

The post on the RPG team’s Facebook page added: “The road was closed for as short a time as possible to effect recovery and minimise disruption.”
