Emergency workers could be heard saying that a driver had suffered a “pretty serious eye injury,” and an ambulance quickly left the scene.

One tanker-type truck with a similar tanker-type trailer was seen in the ditch, with the trailer appearing detached from the truck.

Another truck, a flatbed, was seen with damage to the front passenger side of the fender.

The extent of any injuries is currently unknown.

More to come…
