No summons was issued for the driver of a tractor-trailer that flipped while heading toward the LBI Causeway Thursday, police said.

The decision was based on the initial incident report from the accident investigator on the scene, according to Det. Michael Nash of the Ship Bottom Police Department.

"It appears he was not speeding. Eyewitnesses said it almost look like it happened in slow motion," he said.

It was an an "unfortunate" load shift as he made the turn, said Nash, who added no summons would be issued in this incident.

The tractor trailer flipped while driving on Route 72 near the Oskar Huber furniture store in Ship Bottom.

The accident occurred near Eighth Street, Ship Bottom police said.

The truck driver was transported to Southern Ocean Medical Center for treatment of a hand injury, police said.

The truck overturned in front of Oskar Huber while turning onto an access road to the outbound causeway. The sign on the cab identified the tractor as belonging to the Seminole Construction and Demolition Company.
