Trucker Ejected, Sand Load Spills in Waco Rollover

WACO - A trucker was ejected when his 18-wheeler overturned near Baylor University Monday.

The accident happened around noon at the intersection of La Salle Avenue and University Parks Drive.  According to Waco Police, the driver was transported to the hospital after turning onto La Salle, spilling sand and motor oil onto the road.

Waco Fire Officials said the man, in his 30's or 40's, was taken to Hillcrest Hospital in serious, but stable condition.  The man was conscious when emergency crews arrived, but he'd fractured his left femur and injured his hand.

Fire crews used the spilled sand in the cleanup.

It's unknown what caused the trucker to wreck, but officials on-scene said it was likely the load shifted or he was speeding.  Waco Police are investigating.
