LA CRESCENTA — A dump truck overturned Tuesday morning on Foothill Boulevard and spilled about four tons of dirt and rocks excavated from a local debris basin, police said.
A Los Angeles County firefighter driving the truck sustained an cut on his forearm but wasn't seriously injured, Glendale Police Officer Jay Katska said.
But the Fire Department dump truck was destroyed when it overturned on Foothill Boulevard and Boston Avenue.
Glendale police investigators were looking into the crash, but Katska said "there may be a brake adjustment issue with the truck."
The truck had just picked up three to four tons of earth excavated from a foothill-area debris basin and was headed to a dump site outside the city, Katska said.
The truck made its way down Boston Avenue to Foothill Boulevard at about 15 mph and was going to turn when its load shifted and caused the rig to topple over, he said.
