SOUTH DENNIS -UPDATE: The driver of the dump truck that smashed into a tree on Route 134 was declared deceased at Cape Cod Hospital. The Dennis Police Department reports that the deceased is identified as Parker Turner, 66, of East Dennis.

PREVIOUS: Around 1:30 p.m. Monday a 1987 GMC dump truck traveling north on Route 134 veered off the road to the right and struck a school zone signal light, a fence and a tree on the edge of the parking lot at 900 Route 134. There were apparently no skid marks on the road and witnesses said the truck was swerving before it left the road.

The driver, traveling alone, was extricated by Dennis Police officers who reportedly began CPR prior to the arrival of Dennis Fire Rescue medics. The driver was transported to Cape Cod Hospital by Dennis ambulance.

Route 134 was shut down in both directions while police investigated. The crash site is across the street from the Wixon Middle School. The scene was cleared around 3 p.m.
