One dead, 2 injured after dump truck overturns in Pineville

Posted: Updated:

One person was killed and two others were injured Tuesday when a dump truck overturned near Pineville.

The accident happened just before 5 p.m. on the 13000 block of Lancaster Highway, near state line.

A dump truck, being driven by Stephen Timothy Braswell, 58, ran off the road, then over-corrected and lost control, striking two other vehicles, officials said.

The dump truck then rolled onto it's side and slid to a stop.

WBTV's Sky 3 was over the scene as emergency crews worked to free Braswell, who was trapped in the truck. He was pronounced dead at the scene.

The other two drivers were taken to Carolinas Medical Center for injuries and are expected to be okay.

Officials said evidence on scene suggests alcohol use may have been a factor in the crash.

Drivers in the area should expect delays, and avoid the area if possible.
