Lubbock first responders are on the scene of an overturned 18-wheeler at the South Loop 289 and Interstate 27.

The semi overturned just before 11 a.m. Thursday, at the clover leaf from northbound I-27, entering the South Loop headed westbound. A second rig arrived just before noon, so that the truck's cargo could be transferred from one to the other.

The condition of the truck's driver is unknown at this time.

Authorities had also reported a diesel fuel leak. The Lubbock Fire Department arrived within minutes, to secure the scene.

As of 2 p.m., the rig was still on its side. Stay with NewsChannel 11 and KCBD.com for information as it becomes available.
