Tanker truck rolls over on Highway 44

A tanker truck rollover accident near Corpus Christi caused one man to be airlifted to the hospital with serious injuries.

At this time, officials believe that a vehicle may have cut the trucker off causing him to over-correct the vehicle. The driver then lost control, which caused the truck to flip over. The accident scene happened just northeast of Alice as the tanker was carrying diesel fuel to Edinberg.

Some of the fuel spilled onto the ground as a result of the accident, which caused the roadway to be shut down for some time while emergency crews worked to clean up.

Truck rollover accidents can cause serious injury, our thoughts are with the victim in the accident as he recovers.
