MARTIN COUNTY - A highway temporarily shut down after a utility truck tips off the back of a truck in Martin County.

The accident happened on Highway 349, 15 miles north of Midland, on Friday night.

We're told a truck swerved to avoid an 18-wheeler turning onto the highway.

It ended up crossing into oncoming traffic and smashed into another truck hauling a utility vehicle.

The utility machine tipped over and left a hole in the road.

Crews had to come out and repair it before opening the highway back up.

Both drivers escaped uninjured.
