Logging truck overturned injuring one; fuel leaking and power lines down
A logging truck overturned Monday in North Hall County, injuring one person.

The driver of a logging truck was injured after his vehicle overturned Monday morning on Belton Bridge Road in North Hall County, authorities said.

The Mack truck carrying the lumber left the roadway while traveling westbound on Belton Bridge Road and overturned on its side, said Georgia State Patrol Cpl. Dallas Van Scoten. The truck overturned just east of Skitts Mountain Road.

The driver of the Mack truck was identified as William Hunter Watson, 37, of Ellijay. He suffered non-life-threatening injuries and was transported to Northeast Georgia Medical Center.

He was listed in stable condition Monday afternoon, hospital officials said.

Fuel leaked from the 2005 Mack truck and power lines were on the ground.

Habersham EMC was notified about the power line.
