Driver escapes injury after truck rollover on Stadium Dr

UPDATE: STADIUM Dr will not be cleared and reopened to traffic until around 5pm this afternoon, the NSW Transport Management Centre says.  

A large amount of scrap metal is being removed from the roadway and it will take some time to right the truck.   

10.20AM: A TRUCK rollover has blocked Stadium Dr with emergency services on scene clearing the wreckage. 

The accident happened just before 10am when a dump truck carting metal rolled opposite the Coffs Harbour stadium. 

The driver was able to free himself, a NSW Ambulance Media spokesman said. 

He was assessed at the scene by paramedics, but did not require further assistance. 

Emergency services remain on scene clearing a large amount of debris across the roadway.

Stadium Dr is expected to remain closed for some time, as the truck is righted and salvaged. 

The NSW Transport Management Centre has advised motorists to avoid the area.
