MIDLAND - A speeding driver learns his lesson the hard way.
Police were called out to an accident around 8 a.m. Friday morning near the Fairgrounds exit off of Interstate 20.
Officers say traffic was backed up near the Fairgrounds exit and the driver, 25-year-old Christopher Baker, was speeding and couldn't stop in time.
That's when he swerved to avoid hitting a car, veered off the road and tipped his bucket truck over.
Baker was ticketed for failure to control speed.
