"It’s a refrigerator type truck carrying frozen foods. The trailer was well involved.
"The driver has suffered burns to his hands and is being treated by St John paramedics."
Jaron believes the road is still open but asks motorists to drive carefully in the area as there is a lot of debris on the road.
