(ABC 6 News) - A semi trailer, hauling what appears to be sheets of granite, rolled into the ditch while heading towards the town of Lyle this afternoon.

The semi was heading south on Highway 218, when for some reason, the truck went off the road and rolled near 160th street.

The State patrol says the driver suffered a small cut to his cheek. He also appears to have had a dog with him at the time of the accident, but the dog is fine.

Authorities say it's possible the driver was tired or was the victim of distracted driving, but at this point the official cause of the accident is still under investigation.
