An Alabama truck driver escaped injury despite the fact that his big-rig went off of a highway and rolled over early Monday morning.

According to Texas Department of Public Safety Sergeant Stephanie Davis, the crash occurred as 37-year-old Eric Hauer was driving the truck northbound on Highway 62 near County Road 822, several miles south of Buna.

Davis said for an unknown reason, Hauer traveled off the roadway, resulting in the vehicle flipping onto its side.

Traffic was impacted for several hours as work crews removed the truck.
