A log truck ran off the road and overturned Tuesday morning.

The accident happened on Highway 218 near Dusty Lane in Union County.

The driver said his truck ran off the edge of the road, and the soft shoulder caused it to flip onto its side, according to the North Carolina Highway Patrol.

The driver of the truck was taken to Carolinas Medical Center Main, but his injuries are not believed to be life-threatening.

He will be cited for failing to maintain lane control, troopers said.

One lane of Highway 218 is expected to be closed for several hours.
