Authorities say that the man lost control of his truck around a bend on Franklin Road, near north Boundary Park. He was transported to Passavant Hospital by emergency medical services.

The bend is a common spot for accidents, according to a Zelienople Fire Department official. The department encouraged motorists to use cation in colder weather, even when road conditions seem good.

Motorists on Franklin should expect a delay.
