TAHOKA, TX (KCBD) -

Troopers with the Department of Public Safety were on the scene of an early morning crash that happened around 4 a.m., eight miles south of Tahoka in Lynn County.

The crash involved a semi-tractor carrying groceries. Troopers say the driver fell asleep and drifted into the center median, then over-corrected causing the semi to overturn in the southbound lanes. The driver was not injured.

A box truck drove up on the crash and tried to avoid the overturned semi, but clipped it causing the box truck to go across the center median into the northbound lanes. The box truck rolled onto its top in the east ditch. The driver and two passengers of the box truck were not injured. The box truck was also carrying groceries.

Traffic has been diverted onto FM 3332 until all the debris can be cleaned.
