Ephrata Police investigated a one vehicle accident at approximately 9:50am involving an armored truck. An armored truck from Garda company (Berks Co.) was traveling south on N. Reading Road when just before the intersection with Bowmansville Road the truck driver reported he had to brake suddenly due to traffic stopping and he lost control of the vehicle as it skidded sideways off the south side of the roadway. The truck spun around out of control and slid down about a five foot embankment where it stopped in a small grass field. Neither the driver nor the passenger, both from Reading area were injured.
The truck did not loose any of its contents but required a large tow truck to recover it from the grass field. The driver was able to drive the vehicle from the scene.
