A semitractor-trailer overturned into a ditch on Kansas Highway 10 near Eudora early Wednesday morning.

About 5:40 a.m. the semi was eastbound on K-10 near Eudora’s Church Street exit when the driver reached over to retrieve something inside the truck and the vehicle went off the road and overturned on its side, Sgt. Kristen Channel of the Douglas County Sheriff’s Office said, in an email.

The driver, who sustained nonlife-threatening injuries, was taken via ambulance to Lawrence Memorial Hospital, Channel said.

K-10 was not shut down when the accident occurred and the wreck didn’t impede traffic, Channel said. She said as of Wednesday afternoon the trucking company was still working to get the vehicle removed.

No other vehicles were involved, Channel said.
