Posted: Updated:

A truck driver has been taken to a Lufkin hospital after he lost control and ran off of Highway 69 North in Central Monday night.

According to Central Fire Chief Dennis Cochran, the accident occurred around 7:30 pm.

Cochran said at this time, he does not have a name of the driver.

"The driver lost control, crossed the highway and took out a part of the fence at Central Elementary, before it stopped at a tree line," Cochran said.

Cochran also added that the driver appeared to have suffered only minor injuries. The driver could be seen getting loaded into an ambulance, wearing a neck brace and a bandage on his forehead.

Cochran would not speculate if there was any signs of alcohol involved.

Cochran said that the truck was refrigerated and carrying a load of apples.

Markings on the cab of the truck indicate that it belongs to Texans Express, LLC.
