Traffic along state Highway 111 East near Yoakum was slowed for about 12 hours, when a tractor-trailer and its load of lyme overturned overnight.
The crash scene, near Galloway Street, was limited to one lane in both directions from about 11:30 p.m. Thursday until after 11 a.m. Friday, according to law enforcement officials.
The lyme had to be off-loaded onto another truck before the wrecked truck could be removed from the roadway.
The driver was taken by Yoakum Fire Department Emergency Medical Services to Yoakum Community Hospital where he was treated and released.
