Semi tips over

Posted: Updated:

Stephens County, Okla._A semi-truck tipped on its side in Stephens County Thursday evening after taking a turn too fast.

Police said it fell over after the driver tried to turn onto the Duncan Bypass from Highway 7.

The truck's load of scrap metal was dumped into the median. When our crews got there, the truck was back on its wheels.

The driver admitted he took the turn too fast, when his brakes locked up and that's what caused the truck to tip.

The southbound traffic on the Bypass was closed for about 3 hours while crews got the mess cleaned up. The driver was not injured.
