    A truck driver is recovering after firefighters had to rescue him from his cab after his big rig rolled over Monday afternoon.

    The Dunlap Fire Department says the incident happened a little after 3 p.m. on Reynolds Road on Cagle Mountain.

    The DFD says firefighters found an 18-wheeler with a dump trailer had rolled onto its side while trying to dump the load. The driver of the truck was pinned inside the cab.
