(KARK/NBC News) – A semi truck driver managed to escape without injuries when a bridge in Ola, Arkansas collapsed under the weight of his rig Wednesday.

Yell County Sheriff Bill Gilkey confirms the Dale Bend Bridge collapsed and the 18 wheeler that had been driving over it fell into the Petit Jean River.

The truck was carrying processed chicken at the time of the crash.
