JACKSON COUNTY, Kan. (WIBW) -- A truck driver received minor injuries Thursday during a rollover accident in Jackson County.

The crash happened on US 75, three miles north of Holton at mile marker 193 at 12:50 PM Thursday, October, 25, 2012.

Troopers say the driver lost control of the semi truck and drove off the west side of the highway, forcing the truck to tip over onto its right side in the shoulder.

Traffic flow was not impacted, officials said.

The driver was treated at Holton Community Hospital for minor injuries.

The accident is still under investigation but troopers believe the truck driver may have been following another vehicle too closely.

He was headed to Houston, Texas from Sioux City, Iowa.
