Rescue workers carry the injured driver of a truck that overturned on Princeton-Kingston Road to an ambulance late Friday morning. Traffic had to be rerouted for two hours after the dump truck loaded with stone overturned at 11:51 a.m. The accident occurred when the right rear wheel of the truck came off near the intersection of Shady Brook Lap°, according to Princeton Township police Sgt. Mario Musso. The truck, which had been headed west, is the property of the Sussman Driveway Corp. of Princeton. The driver of the truck, Daniel J. Wackley of Dunellen, was transported to the Medical Center at Princeton where he was treated for contusions and lacerations and released. Traffic was diverted from Princeton-Kingston Road to a small road along Carnegie Lake while a state crew removed gravel from the highway and a tow truck removed the disabled truck, Sgt. Musso said.
