High winds blamed for big rig rollover on Highway 87

Posted: Updated:
LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) -

A driver suffered minor injuries Monday afternoon when high winds caused a semi truck to roll over on FM 211 and Highway 87 just south of Lubbock County near the Lynn County line.

The semi was heading north on Highway 87 with an empty trailer around 2 p.m. when a gust of wind blew through and rolled it over.

The driver was taken to Lynn County Hospital with minor injuries.

Traffic was detoured for a short time but we are told it is now back to normal.
