UPDATE 6:30 p.m.

A flat tire was the culprit when a large dump truck ran off Va. 234 in Dumfries and into the embankment at a gas station Tuesday.

The driver lost control of the 1993 Ford dump truck about noon and crashed into some shrubbery at a Shell gas station casing $2,500 damage, said Dumfries police Chief Robert Forker.

No one was injured. The truck is registered to Branscome Paving of Manassas, added Forker.

Charges are pending in the case.

Details on this one are scares, and we don’t have reports of any injuries in this crash.

We are checking with Dumfries police who responded to the crash scene for an update.
