NEWARK TOWNSHIP - A truck driver is in the hospital after flipping over his truck.

It happened at 7:02am on STH 81 just west of CTH H.  Investigators say the 65 year-old failed to negotiate a curve.  He then went off road into a ditch and struck a field access causing the rollover.

The driver was transported to Beloit Memorial Hospital with non-life threatening injuries.  Speed is not considered to be a factor, however the driver was cited for failing to maintain control of the truck.

Traffic was blocked off for nearly three hours.
