Woman Suffers Minor Injuries After Being Hit By Tanker Truck

A woman suffered only minor injuries after getting hit by a tanker truck this afternoon. It happened around 1 o'clock at the corner of Commerce Street and the east Loop in Tyler.

The tanker was turning west on Commerce, right in front of the woman's car. The crash sent the car spinning, crashing into a Chevy pick-up. Hazmat teams were called out to help with the clean up of diesel fuel. The driver of the car was taken to a local hospital for minor injuries. The driver of the chevy was not hurt.

The tanker truck driver was ticketed for failing to yield the right of way.
