An overturned PennDOT salt truck caused some traffic delays Monday morning in New Britain, Bucks County.

The single-axle dump truck was spreading salt on Callowhill Road approaching New Galena Road when it overturned shortly before 8:00 a.m., taking down a utility pole and shutting down the road.

Investigators say the passenger side wheels of the truck slipped off the edge of the pavement on the narrow road.

As the driver tried to correct for the problem he struck a utility pole and the truck rolled onto its side.

The driver suffered some bumps and bruises but is going to be okay.

No other vehicles were involved.

Callowhill Road was shut down at New Galena Road most of the morning.
