Emergency service crews were called to an accident in Bung Bong earlier this week when a truck veered off Avoca Road and tipped over.

A man has escaped serious injury after rolling the truck he was driving at Bung Bong on Monday.

The man, aged in his 60s, was the sole occupant of the single vehicle crash which occurred on Avoca Road at around 1.30 pm on Monday.

The driver was travelling from the Pyrenees Highway towards Talbot when the truck veered off the road and rolled onto its side.
