A turn taken too fast is the cause of a semi-truck toppling over Tuesday morning, according to a sheriff.

Cross County Sheriff J.R. Smith tells Region 8 News the truck was in Hickory Ridge around 5:15 a.m. traveling north on Highway 49.

Smith says the truck driver then tried to turn too quickly onto Highway 42 causing it to fall over near some railroad tracks.

The truck driver was not injured in the crash.
