ELECTRA, TX (KAUZ) - A driver of a small semi-truck had a small scare on Wednesday just outside of Electra.

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.
