Dump Truck Accident Leaves Holt Man With Minor Injuries


A Holt man was left with minor injuries after his dump truck overturned Monday afternoon near Lathrop.

The Highway Patrol says 61-year-old Holt resident Byron K. Botts was operating a 2018 Kenworth T8-80 on southeast 216th Street about five miles south of Lathrop just after 3 P.M. Monday. They say as he raised his dump bed the center of gravity on the truck shifted causing the vehicle to overturn onto its drivers side.

Botts was reportedly still wearing a safety device but suffered minor injuries. He was taken by Holt Fire and EMS to Liberty Hospital for treatment of his injuries.
