We now know why a tanker truck overturned Saturday in northeast Brazos County shutting down OSR for more than ten hours.
DPS officials tell News 3 driver inattention is the reason for the crash.
49-year-old Willard Nichols was uninjured in the accident and was released from the scene after he veered off the soft shoulder and rolled the truck.
Hazmat crews were on scene throughout the afternoon Saturday cleaning up spilled gasoline from the tanker.
Nichols was not ticketed for that single vehicle accident
