Warren — Slick roads caused a rollover crash that totaled a vehicle in Warren Dec. 31.

The driver of a 2001 Toyota Tacoma truck, Albert Overlock, 76, of Warren, lost control of the vehicle while traveling north on Route 131, according to Knox County Sheriff's Deputy Matt Elwell.

After flipping over, the truck landed on its roof at the side of the road.

Overlock sustained a cut on his finger, said Elwell.

Warren Fire and EMS, Thomaston Police, and the Knox County Sheriff's Office responded to the call.

That is 2 on this road in one night! Come on Warren wake up! Your roads need to be taken care of. Union's end of the road is bare. It is really noticeable when you hit a road in Warren! We were on 131 Monday and there was hardly any sand on the road it was horrible, If you do not have the equipment to keep the roads safe contract someone who does!!

For an area that should be used to aggressive road treatment, companies do a really lousy job of treating roads. Hope is good, but other areas sure don't keep up.

Glad my Uncle Albert is OK.  I traveled on that road before this and it was very slippery.  As you can see from the picture, it is now sanded.  Too bad it takes a car accident before roads get sanded.
