TYLER, TX (KLTV) -

The Tyler Police Department says the section of Paluxy Drive that was closed Tuesday night has been re-opened.

Police say that a cement tanker truck owned by Schwerman Trucking, went off the road and turned over in the 8300 block of Paluxy Drive. Because the truck was so large, a crane was brought in to get the truck into an upright position. 

Police officers were on scene diverting traffic until just before midnight Tuesday.
