A dump truck hauling coal ash overturned Friday April 19, 2013 afternoon on Moreland Drive in Kingsport, leaving the driver in serious but stable condition at a local hospital. The single vehicle crash occurred shortly before 12:30 p.m. Friday near the underpass at John B. Dennis Highway. KPD Officer Dustin Jackson said the Vic Davis Construction vehicle was traveling a downhill grade when the driver lost control and exited the right side of the roadway. The dump truck then struck a guardrail and overturned, closing both lanes of traffic. The driver was transported to Holston Valley Medical Center by Sullivan County EMS. Officer Jackson said an investigation is continuing with charges pending.
