A Blue Bell ice cream truck crashed and overturned at a DeKalb County intersection Monday morning.

Police at the scene said the driver was heading east on North Druid Hills Road when he hit a long line of metal construction plates at High Haven Court and lost control. Despite striking a power pole, the driver was not injured.

The truck was lying on its side after it overturned. Its windshield had several cracks and a large hole in the glass.

Georgia Power was at the scene to fix the downed electrical wires so that a wrecker could eventually get the truck upright.
