Investigators are on the scene of a crash that left a tractor trailer on the side of the road and down a 50-foot ravine.

WBTV was on the scene along Highway 70, just west of town limits of the town of Catawba in Catawba County on Monday morning.

The truck was carrying fabric and the driver told WBTV that a female driver was in his lane coming towards him.

He says he swerved off the road to the right and over-corrected coming back and lost control. The truck went down a 50-foot ravine.

WBTV has been told that troopers are investigating. No one was injured.
