A caller told police a trucker drove through fresh concrete Friday afternoon near North Bonnie Brae and Panhandle streets, according to a police report.

The complainant said a heavy-duty truck damaged freshly poured concrete on the roadway by driving on top of it around 12:30 p.m. The report says the area the trucker drove through is a commercial site that’s been under construction for several years.

Police spoke with the driver, who said he was making a delivery in the area. He said he attempted to enter the closed driveway and hadn’t been notified it would be closed. The complainant said the company the driver worked for had been notified the driveway would be closed.

The driver couldn’t turn around due to construction and continued to drive forward, and that was when he drove over the concrete, according to the report.

A report was taken. Police don’t believe this is a criminal matter at the moment, police spokeswoman Khristen Jones said.
