SEAGOVILLE, Texas (CBSDFW.COM) – On Friday morning a lumber truck traveling west-bound on Hwy 175 in Kaufman County blew a left front tire causing the driver to lose control and crashing on a bridge.

According to reports the truck hit the guard rail as it was crossing a bridge and the truck caught fire. Some of the lumber also fell off the overpass to the ground below and started a small brush fire.

The driver was transported to Baylor Hospital in Dallas with non-life threatening injuries.

Officials say TxDOT will need to inspect the bridge.

The road is expected to be closed for several hours.
