Updated: Wednesday, July 31 2013, 05:03 PM EDT



A semitruck driver was critically injured in a crash Wednesday afternoon in Brooke County.

Officials said the tractor-trailer was hauling a bulldozer, when the vehicle lost control and struck a tree. The crash happened around 3 p.m. on Brady's Ridge Road.

The bulldozer went up over the cab of the tractor-trailer, but investigators said they believe the driver was able to escape from the vehicle before it struck the tree.

The driver was taken to Weirton Medical Center in critical condition. The road was closed while crews cleared the scene and was expected to be reopened by 5:30 p.m.
