Lufkin man involved in propane truck rollover

ANGELINA COUNTY, TX (KTRE) - A Lufkin man refused treatment after he rolled over the propane truck he was driving on FM 58, Thursday around 12:40 p.m.

According to DPS trooper Heith White, the driver was driving northbound when he veered toward the southbound lane, overcorrected, then overcorrected again. The weight of the truck forced him to rollover into a ditch by the southbound lane.

White said firefighters were on standby, as there was a small leak from the rollover.

White said the driver will be cited. His name and age were not immediately available.

The truck belonged to Stafford's Liquigas, a Lufkin business.
