Today’s weather created hazardous wind conditions that led to an accident near Alice.

It occurred just north of Alice near Orange Grove around 8 a.m. when an 18-wheeler carrying mangoes flipped on Highway 281.

 

High winds and heavy rain caused the driver to run off the highway and go into a ditch.

He then over-corrected and that’s what caused him to flip.

 

No one was injured and that driver was checked out medics on the scene.
