    The driver of an 18-wheeler is recovering after rolling off Interstate 30 and crashing into a pond Friday morning in Dallas, police say.

    The driver called 911 at about 2 a.m. after crashing off westbound I-30 just west of Loop 12.

    The driver was rescued from the cabin of the truck, which came to rest on its side in a pond along the side of the highway. The driver was hospitalized with non-life-threatening injuries, officials said.

    The Texas Department of Transportation was called in to help repair a heavily damaged stretch of guardrail along the highway. A hazardous materials cleanup crew was also sent to the scene.
