Early morning rollover accident

Posted: Updated:

Around 5:00 am this morning, Potter County officers were dispatched to US Highway 287 North of Amarillo at mile marker 128 where reports of a semi-truck flipped over were called in. 

The driver of the cattle truck was headed from Cactus, TX to Amarillo. Police believe the driver fell asleep at the wheel. The driver was traveling in the right hand lane when he over-corrected twice, causing his truck to flip.

Officers do not believe speed or any other factor were causes of the accident, other than the driver falling asleep. 

Cattle were spread throughout the median and some were injured. The driver of the truck was not injured.
