BOULDER, Colo. (AP) - The Daily Camera says that when a concrete pumper truck overturned during work on the University Colorado’s stadium expansion, the fire department only heard about it on the news.

Boulder police and fire spokeswoman Kim Kobel told the Camera ( https://tinyurl.com/nm7kdna ) that firefighters, curious when they saw a news helicopter over the stadium, called a fire station where staff had seen a TV news report about the truck and the decision was made to send a crew to investigate.

CU spokesman Bronson Hilliard said the university would look into why no one at the construction site called the police or fire department.

No one was inside the truck when it slipped over on wet ground about 1:30 p.m. It was righted some six hours later.
