18-Wheeler Flips, Seriously Injuring Driver

An 18-wheeler flipped just north of Slaton today sending one man to the hospital.

DPS officials say the truck driver was coming down a hill at an uncontrollable speed when the vehicle flipped near county road 7300 and 3700 around 4pm. The semi was carrying a full tank of crude oil and officials belive the shift in weight inside the tank forced the semi over.

The driver was transported by Aerocare to University Medical Center with serious injuries.
