A driver lost control of his 10-wheeler truck late Friday morning on Highway 105 after it is believed the front tire blew out on the vehicle causing it to roll and eject the driver.
A witness, who is a registered nurse and whom helped the victim until rescue crews arrived on the scene, says the driver lost steering capabilities and swerved to the left as the truck was traveling east bound on the highway near Pottawatomie Road.
The nurse went on to say the truck then hit a culvert causing the truck to roll and ejecting the driver. The victim was able to walk a short distance before falling down.
The Bobtail tanker belongs to RDT Trucking of Crescent.
The Guthrie Fire Department, Logan County Sheriff’s Office and Oklahoma Highway Patrol responded to the accident.
