MIDLAND - A big rig tried to make too big of wide turn on Highway 158 and sent a pickup truck flying.

The accident happened on Highway 349 and Highway 158 in northwest Midland on Monday.

DPS Troopers tell NewsWest 9, an 18-wheeler pulled onto the shoulder to make a left turn.

Unfortunately he didn't see the white truck behind him that was trying to pass him.

When the rig began to turn, it clipped the truck and sent it rolling.

The driver in the white truck only had minor injuries and wasn't taken to the hospital.

The rig driver was ticketed for unsafe turn.
