Traffic on Plessis Road was brought to a near standstill Tuesday evening by a cement truck that had flipped over onto its side.

The truck could be seen lying on the drivers side on the centre median.

Southbound Plessis was closed between Regent Avenue and Pandora, but has since been reopened.

Diesel fuel was leaking from the truck. 

The driver of the truck sustained minor injuries.

The city said a hazmat unit was dispatched to the scene, but was not required.

The cause of the flip is still unknown.
