Posted: Updated:
LUFKIN, TX (KTRE) -

A pickup burst into flames after its driver lost control and went into a ditch from the Lufkin Loop near the intersection of Atkinson Drive Monday afternoon. No one was injured.

According to Jesse Moody, a battalion chief with the Lufkin Fire Department, the driver of a Toyota Tacoma pulling a trailer full of lumber started fish-tailing on the Lufkin Loop and wound up in a ditch. The pickup caught fire.

The four people in the Tacoma escaped the burning truck and were not injured.

Lufkin firefighters put the vehicle fire out within minutes.
