Driver hurt as lorry tumbles into ravine

A 54-YEAR-OLD lorry driver was seriously injured after his vehicle toppled into a ravine as he drove along the TF-65 in the early hours.

The incident happened on Wednesday in the San Miguel de Abona vicinity. The emergency services were alerted and

fire-fighters were dispatched immediately, to help recover the driver, and his lorry.

An ambulance was also made available, along with a doctor and nurse from the Los Cristianos medical centre.

Once the man was rescued from the lorry, he was assessed by the medics, and, because of the severity of bruising he had endured, he was taken to Hospiten Sur for further treatment.
