Crews spend several hours Tuesday trying to clean up after a semi-truck rollover accident.

According to the State Highway Patrol, Tony Chevalier was driving a semi eastbound in the 9700-block of Marietta Road in New Lexington when he crashed around 4:45 p.m.

"I think he was going too fast down this hill and just kind of lost control and went of the right side," says Trooper Kari Riebesell, Lancaster Post of the State Highway Patrol.

Trooper Riebesell says Chevalier was cited for failure to control. She says he had some minor injuries, but refused treatment. Several wreckers had to be called in to get the semi, which was carrying thousands of pounds of metal beams, back upright.
