A dump truck loaded with dirt tipped over Friday morning during a turn at K-15 and 47th Street South, resulting in K-15’s northbound lanes being closed at the intersection, a Sedgwick County dispatch supervisor said.

The driver did not sustain any injuries. The accident happened about 8:15 a.m. as the truck was turning north on K-15.

A Kansas Department of Transportation crew later cleaned up the dirt so the lanes could be reopened, the supervisor said.
