A truck overturned on Algonquin Road this morning.

LAKE IN THE HILLS – A driver was taken to the hospital Thursday after a cement truck flipped over a guardrail and overturned along Algonquin Road near Mohawk Trail in Lake in the Hills.

Lake in the Hills Police Sgt. Don Fowler said the cement truck was heading south on Mohawk Trail and lost control trying to turn left onto Menominee Drive. The truck hit and flipped over the guardrail before ending up on its side across the westbound lanes of Algonquin Road, Fowler said.

The incident occurred a little before 7:30 a.m.

The driver was taken by the Algonquin-Lake in the Hills Fire Protection District to Sherman Hospital in Elgin with injuries that were not life-threatening, Fowler said.

A small amount of cement spilled onto the road and was cleaned up.
