At around noon today, a car stopped at the intersection of Highway 16 and 65 in front of a semi.
When the truck saw the car, the truck driver went off the side of the road and into the Little Red River to avoid hitting the car.
Officials said the driver was okay, but he was taken to the hospital as a precaution.
