SPEEGLEVILLE (May 6, 2014) An area woman was taken by ambulance to a Waco hospital Tuesday after she was injured when the truck she was driving veered off a small bridge and crashed into a creek bed.

The accident happened just after 1 p.m. on Speegle Road near Randy Drive.

Officials at the scene said the woman, who was alone in her pickup truck, swerved to miss a squirrel that was in the road, and lost control of the truck, which ran into the side of the bridge.

The truck veered over the concrete side of the bridge and overturned, landing in the creek below.

The woman’s injuries were not life-threatening.
