ODESSA - The driver of an 18-wheeler in Odessa had to be taken to the hospital after rolling his big rig.

The accident happened Thursday afternoon on Yukon Road and Highway 302.

The truck was headed eastbound on Highway 302 when the driver tried to turn south on Yukon but the water the truck was carrying shifted and that caused the 18-wheeler to fall over on its side.

DPS officials say the driver, who is from California, ended up with minor injuries.
