2 injured in truck crash on Route 109, police say

A concrete truck and a Ryder rental truck collided on Route 109 this afternoon, blocking the roadway and causing cement to spill everywhere, Dover police said.

The cement truck, owned by Tresca Brothers Concrete, Sand, and Gravel, collided with an 18-foot Ryder box truck at the intersection of Route 109 and Appletree Lane at about 11:15 a.m., Dover police said in a statement.

Two people were taken to an area hospital with injuries that were not considered life-threatening, police said.

Upon arriving at the scene, police found the box truck with extensive damage on its side, and the cement truck overturned, blocking the entire roadway, according to the release.

The box truck exited Appletree Lane and collided with the cement truck that was traveling eastbound, according to preliminary reports, police said.

Both directions of Route 109, which runs along the Dover-Walpole line in the southern part of town, were closed for a few hours follwing the incident. Both lanes have since been reopened.

Local and State Police are investigating. No further information was immediately available.
