GREENFIELD, MA (WSHM) -

A scary moment for a dump truck driver on Route 2 this afternoon.

Capt. Kyle Phelps of the Greenfield Fire Department told CBS 3 that the driver went to dump the contents of his truck and his rear wheels got stuck in the mud.

That left the truck teetering on a cliff that drops about 75 feet down.

An excavator held the truck in place and eventually crews were able to pull the truck to safety.

No one, including the driver, was injured during the incident.
