Concrete truck topples over at hospital

Construction workers at Lismore Base Hospital were lucky to escape uninjured when a concrete pumping truck toppled over at about 7.10 am this morning.

Lismore police Inspector Susie Johnson said workers were operating the truck remotely, extending the boom and moving the stabilising legs on the vehicle, in preparation to pour a concrete slab when the incident happened.

The construction site has been shut down and will be inspected by Com Care officials and engineers.

The truck will remain on its side until inspections are completed.

Construction on stage 3 of the hospital is expected to resume in the New Year.
