EDWARDS, MS (Mississippi News Now) -

An 18-wheeler crashed at 2:50 am on Friday and flipped into a ditch on I-20 west.

MHP says the driver, Cyle Garland of Rossville, Georgia, collided with a parked car that was on the shoulder of the interstate. The truck then went off the road and flipped. 

Garland told officials that he fell asleep at the wheel.

We're told he has minor injuries and was taken to the hospital.

The truck spilled its load of large industrial rolls of paper on the side of the road. 

The interstate never had to be shut down because they used the frontage road to get the 18-wheeler out of the ditch.
