Waco firefighters helped free a driver who was trapped after a rollover accident involving a cement truck. 

The crash happened in the 1400 block of Hewitt Drive on Thursday morning. The right lane was blocked as crews worked to remove the car from the area.

Waco police said a cement truck was attempting to change lanes when a Ford Fusion was in its blind spot. The Ford swerved to avoid the cement truck, drove into a ditch, and rolled on its side. 

The driver had to be freed from the Ford by firefighters and went to the hospital for minor injuries.
