Crews from National Grid were summoned to cut power to nearby power lines.

The truck is owned by Precision Trade Works, a landscaping and tree-removal business from Woodstock, Connecticut. 

Officials said the truck overturned after a stabilizer sunk into the soft, rain-soaked ground. 

Removal of the truck was expected to take several hours.
