A truck driver escaped without serious injury, after his big rig ran off the road and down an embankment Thursday afternoon.

The crash happened around 3 pm, on John Sevier Highway at Old French Road.

The driver told 10News that he reached down for a bottle of water and lost control, rolling down the hill and snapping a telephone pole at the bottom.

He is banged up, but not seriously injured.

There were no other vehicles involved.

One lane of John Sevier may be closed while a wrecker moves the truck.
