A dump truck is pictured here Monday afternoon rolled over and emptied of its load of coal after failing to stop at the bottom of the ramp off of Exit 42 of eastbound Interstate 68. Daniel Paul Leonard, 27, of Oldtown told Cumberland Police that his 1989 Ford had brake problems and he guided the truck to avoid a collision with stopped traffic. Cumberland Fire Department also responded to the 1:32 p.m. wreck, according to the Allegany County 911 Center. No one was injured and the Maryland State Police Commercial Vehicle Enforcement Division is investigating the incident, city police said.
