The truck had been gritting roads on Saturday morning before it crashed into the field.
Church Road was closed for a number of hours due to black ice.

Police are advising the public to drive carefully in these icy conditions and allow plenty of time for your journey.
Folks since 6.30am this morning we have received 16 reports of traffic collisions in the Northern control area. Larne & Newtownabbey seem to be especially bad. Black Ice and surface water a big factor. Please drive carefully and allow plenty of time for your journey. pic.twitter.com/mgQUm6sbpA— PSNI (@PoliceServiceNI) December 16, 2017
