ANGELINA COUNTY, TX (KTRE) - One lane of northbound traffic on U.S. Highway 59 north of Lufkin is blocked after an 18-wheeler lost control and wound up in the ditch.
The wreck happened at about 9 15 a.m. Thursday morning near the intersection of Old Highway 59 between Nacogdoches and Lufkin. It appears as though the southbound 18-wheeler's driver lost control before his rig went into the ditch.
The truck's driver, Glenn Roberts, of Tennessee, wasn't hurt in the wreck, and a Texas Department of Public Safety trooper at the scene said he will be cited for unsafe speed.
Motorists are urged to use caution in the wet driving conditions.
