CHERRY VALLEY, AR (KAIT) -

A crash in Cross County ended up with a semi-truck off the road after striking a bridge.

A photo of the truck was posted on Twitter from Arkansas State Police Wednesday morning.

And about two hours later traffic started moving again, according to another post by ASP.

An initial report from ASP states officers arrived at the scene around 5:30 a.m. to the single-vehicle crash.

No one was injured in the crash, according to ASP Public Information Officer Bill Sadler.

The driver of the truck, according to ASP, was driving south on Highway 1, just south of Cherry Valley when they swerved to avoid "road debris."

In doing so the driver struck a guardrail then a bridge before leaving the road.

The Arkansas State Highway and Transportation Department is in charge of the scene to check the bridge.

One lane of the bridge is open to traffic.
