Burkeville Fire Chief Charles Duckworth says fortunately there were no injuries in a log truck rollover crash early Wednesday afternoon. Duckworth said it happened during the noon hour on Farm to Market Road 1012 in the Jamestown Community.

The fully loaded truck and trailer lost its load of logs which were strewn next to the wood-line off of the highway.

Texas Department of Public Safety Sergeant Shana Clark later said that 59-year-old Efrain Pantoja, of Jasper, was driving the 2006 Mack truck northbound when an axle on the trailer malfunctioned, causing the rig to roll over.
