Driver dies as dump truck crashes into house

Date Posted: 2012-04-06

The 30-year-old driver of a large dump truck belonging to a Nago City company is dead after losing control of the massive vehicle and crashing into a private house.

The accident occurred at 9:30 a.m. Saturday on Highway 58 in Nago City’s Nakaoji district. The driver, Tokuaki Miyagi, was rescued from the truck and taken unconscious to a nearby Nago City hospital, where he died an hour later.

Nago Police say Miyagi had left from a company in the Yabe district of Nago City earlier in the morning, and was on the way to deliver a load to Ogimi Village. The dump truck crashed into a parking space on the left side of the house, with the driver’s cab crashing into part of the building’s second floor. The impact crushed the cab, pinning Miyagi to his seat.

A rain shower occurred nearby at the time of the accident, Nago Police say, noting there were no braking marks on the road. There was nobody in the residence when the truck crashed into it.
