All traffic lanes south of the Loop near Troup Highway in Tyler were closed temporarily due to an 18-wheeler being overturned.

According to Tyler PD, a man in a semi was traveling west bound on the Loop, and went to turn onto Troup Highway. When he did so, the load of air conditioning units shifted, causing the semi to topple over.

One south bound lane was open to traffic, but closed again in order to unload the contents of the truck. They will then tip the truck back in its upright position.

The scene was cleared in the late afternoon.

The driver of the 18-wheeler suffered minor injuries. He was not taken to a hospital. No other vehicles were involved and no other injuries reported.
