COLUMBUS, Miss. – (WCBI) A Columbus resident got quite the scare Tuesday afternoon, after an 18-wheeler wrecked in her front yard.

The accident happened around 3:30 p.m on Tuscaloosa Rd.

The driver of the transfer truck was headed east, when witnesses say it appeared that he lost consciousness. He then lost control of the rig that finally came to a stop when it slammed into a large magnolia tree.

The driver was transported to Baptist Memorial Golden Triangle for treatment of non-life threatening injuries.

The Columbus Police Department continues to investigate.
