The driver of a dump truck escaped injury this morning when the truck ran off Central Avenue in Needham and ended up in a marshy area near a bridge on the Dover line, police said.

The crash, which is under investigation, happened around 8 a.m. and closed down Central Avenue between Charles River Street in Needham and Claybrook Road in Dover for about 5 1/2 hours.

Police said the northbound truck hit a guardrail and swerved off the road into the marsh area by the Charles River, right before the bridge.

The driver was the only one in the truck.
