Amarillo, TX - A tractor-trailer semi truck carrying cattle ended up on its side Saturday afternoon after the driver somehow lost control and drove off the road.

DPS troopers say it happened around 2:45 p.m. Saturday afternoon on FM 1912 out near the Tyson plant.

For unknown reasons, the eastbound semi was driven off the road causing it to overturn. Several cattle escaped during the wreck, while others were stuck inside.

The driver was ejected, but taken to the hospital in stable condition.

Troopers stayed on scene to try to contain the cattle that got loose during the wreck.
