Dump Truck Flips in Morning Accident

MAY 10, 2006 -- A medical condition may be to blame for an accident in Wilmington Wednesday morning that ended with a dump truck in a yard. The accident happened shortly before 9:00 near the intersection of Brodick Court and Alamosa Drive.

Authorities say Tharon Bascom McGirt, Jr. was driving. He's diabetic and officials think his blood sugar may have dropped, disorienting him.

He ran a stop sign and flipped the truck into a nearby yard. He also hit a power box and knocked out electricity to people in the area.

McGirt was taken to the hospital with minor injuries.
