We're hoping the driver is OK.

During this slick and wet afternoon in the Ark-La-Tex, one truck driver found his way into the trees on I-20. Our friends with RSHV News 1 were the first to report on the accident.

According to them, this Budweiser 18-wheeler slid off the interstate and into the trees on a stretch of I-20 near Longview. Judging by the position of the big rig's front cab, one would have to assume it was going at a fairly high rate of speed before it went off-road.

Once we have more information, we will update this article.
