FLINT, Texas (KLTV) - A semi-truck and trailer transporting cars has overturned on U.S. Highway 69 near Flint.

The incident happened around 9:10 a.m. Thursday as the truck was traveling toward Tyler. Traffic is being diverted on the highway toward Bullard.

The truck was apparently transporting vehicles from Flint to Wilmer and had three on the trailer, including two new Chevrolet work trucks and a passenger truck.

The driver, who did not wish to be identified, said he pulled out onto the highway but, due to the fog, accelerated quickly to try to get in front of oncoming traffic over the hill and it caused the vehicle to flip.
