Trucker Loses Control Slams Into Cemetery

PHILLIPS - A trucker suffering from severe pain drove off the road and into a cemetery Wednesday evening.

The truck crashed through a fence of the Phillips graveyard between Lott and Travis in Falls county. The out of control truck created large ruts in the grass and damaged a number of grave markers.

The driver lost control of his large truck after suffering pain from a medical condition.

The driver was taken to Falls Community Hospital with non-life threatening injuries.
