    We need concrete evidence of what happened.

  2. its only just begun says:

    Hope everyone’s cool, SAL having some bad luck with trucks lately!

  3. Onion Jiuce says:

    Wow, thank goodness for passerby and emergency services, hope the driver is ok. Another SAL truck?

  4. Harry Buttle says:

    We have the hard facts, the driver has cemented his career prospects. In future the company will have to aggregate their resources until this truck is back on the slab.

  5. Truth is killin’ me... says:

    Well done SAL! First the flatbed on Wilkinson Avenue and now this “full load” cement mixer driven off the road.

  6. Jus' Wonderin' says:

    How could the road give way that far from the road unless he was pulled over?

  7. Thanksgiving says:

    Hats off to the officer who pulled the man from the truck.

  8. wahoo juice says:

    Well it looks like they could turn it into a convertible with some blue tarp on de rainy days.

  9. Really says:

    Some nice passerby must have put the road back, it’s clearly there in the picture!

  10. Look In The mIRROR says:

    Glad the driver was okay and makes a speedy recovery. That could’ve ended badly.

  11. WOW says:

    It’s amazing how simple-minded people can be when they do not have the full facts of what happened. Instead of trashing the driver, how about some compassion? What is wrong Bermuda?

  12. Bully Beef says:

    An unnamed Police spokesman said “Traffic diversions in effect until further notice on South Road in Paget near the junction with Seabright Avenue due to a report of an overturned cement truck.”

    There was a REPORT of an overturned truck? I think there was really an overturned truck. Who speaks like this?
