A cement mixer truck overturned in Jurupa Valley Thursday, injuring the driver and requiring a cleanup operation at the location.

The accident was reported at 10:15 a.m. in front of a strip mall near the intersection 39th Street and Rubidoux Boulevard, according to the Riverside County Fire Department.

Three engine crews and a hazardous materials team were sent to the location and found the truck on its left side, with some of its load and a sizable quantity of diesel fuel spilled in the mall parking lot.

The trucker suffered apparent minor injuries, but it was unclear whether he was transported for hospital treatment.

No other vehicles were involved.

Sheriff’s deputies cordoned off the area, and crews initiated a cleanup that concluded shortly before noon.
