A semi-driver escaped injury a little before 11 am Thursday when the truck flipped on its side.

The truck accident happened in the 700 block of N Hubbard Road, between Johnson and McGuffey roads on the city's East Side.

According to first responders at the scene, the truck appeared to drive off the side of the road, which was soft, causing the rig's weight to roll over.

The driver got himself out of the rig and was not injured in the crash. 

The Youngstown Police are investigating the crash.
