WATCH: Traffic camera captures truck tipping over on turn

A sandy scene was recorded by traffic cameras in Oxford, Massachusetts last week.

On November 3, a semi hauling sand was travelling southbound through Oxford when it took a hasty left turn. Unfortunately for the trucker, the force of the turn caused his truckload of sand to shift weight and  tip the big rig over on its side.

Oxford Police Department posted the video on Facebook for those who were “wondering what all the commotion was in the center today.” According to Oxford police, the road was closed for about three hours while cleanup crews worked on sweeping up the sand and helped get the truck upright again.

The trucker was unharmed in the accident, and no other injuries were reported.

Watch the video below to see the footage:
