Posted: Updated:

YAZOO COUNTY, MS (WLBT) - A gravel truck clipped a smaller truck this afternoon and hit a tree, sending the driver to the hospital.

The truck was on Highway 433 in Yazoo County, two miles from Benton. Authorities say the driver swerved to avoid a pick up truck that was turning left into a driveway. He apparently lost control and ran into the tree.

The driver was trapped in the cab for about an hour before he was finally freed.

He was airlifted to UMC. His condition is unknown.
