WATCH: Cement Truck Plows Through Tree in Downtown San Angelo

SAN ANGELO – A tree in downtown San Angelo was uprooted on Monday morning when a cement truck crashed into it at a busy section.

According to reporters on scene, on Sep. 12 at around 10 a.m. officers with the San Angelo Police Department were dispatched to the intersection of Koenigheim and Twohig for the report of a major crash.

The original call came through as a dump truck that had crashed into a tree. When the crew arrived on scene they discovered that instead of a dump truck it was a cement truck. The truck struck an oak tree in the median and completely uprooted it.

Here's a video of the scene.


Firefighters with the San Angelo Fire Department and drivers with Home Motors were called in to clean up the mess. Since the truck had crashed, the cement drum had stopped working. This caused headaches for the crew as the cement truck was too heavy to pull.

The area was eventually cleared and the tree was removed by city workers. No injuries were reported and no cause of the crash has been determined at this time.
