Update: Cement Truck Driver Dies After Crash

Posted:
EASTON, Md. - Maryland State Police say a man who went off the road and overturned the cement truck he was driving Thursday afternoon, has succumbed to his injuries.

Troopers said Friday that Thomas Grossnickle, 60, of Taylor's Island, was pronounced dead at R. Adams Cowley Shock Trauma Center in Baltimore.

Police say Grossnickle was operating a 2015 Mack Cement Truck owned by Chaney Enterprises on Longwood Road between Airport Road and Hiners Lane in Easton Thursday afternoon when he ran off the right side of the road. Police say Grossnickle tried to regain control but over-steered, causing the truck to overturn.

Grossnickle was taken to Easton Memorial Hospital for life-threatening injuries. He was stabilized and then flown Shock Trauma Center where he remained in critical condition until he succumbed to his injuries.

The road was closed for four hours while the scene was investigated and cleared.
