SARASOTA - A dump truck lost its load and its driver was injured when it overturned in Sarasota Monday.

It happened around 10:45am on Clark Road near Proctor Road. According to Florida Highway Patrol, the truck was headed westbound and drifted off the right side of the road as it curved left just before Proctor Road.

The driver, 40-year-old Jose Izquierdo of Pinellas Park, turned left in an attempt to stay on the road, but the truck flipped onto its side, spilling its payload of dirt along the street.

Izquierdo suffered serious injuries and was taken to Doctor’s Hospital.
