ELECTRA, TX (KAUZ) -

A driver of a small semi-truck had a small scare on Wednesday just outside of Electra.

DPS Troopers said the driver was headed East on FM 1739 near Midway Church Road when he hit a turn too sharp. 

We're told the driver then overcorrected causing the truck to turn on its side in a ditch facing West near Bickley Road.

Officials on the scene said the driver was not injured but he was taken to United Regional Hospital to be checked out. 

The tank on small semi-truck he was driving was empty. Traffic in the area was not impacted while crews worked to clear the scene.
