Traffic was delayed this morning on HWY 69 just outside of Mineola when an oil tanker headed south, near Loop 564, became disconnected from its rig around 7:15 a.m.
The tanker fell on to the Highway and crews worked the duration of the morning to remove it.
Charles Carter of Dallas was driving the rig for a company out of Greenville. No citations were given. Troopers said the accident was unavoidable by the driver.
No injuries were reported.
