A Schwan's truck driver is injured after his truck crashes into an embankment on Tuesday morning.
An accident report from the Winneshiek County Sheriff's Department says that the driver, Marc Hines, 37, was crossing a bridge, headed north bound on Bluffton Road when an "unknown vehicle" was "crowding or over the center line."
Hines had to swerve to avoid the vehicle, which caused his truck to hit the side of the bridge; Hines then lost control of the truck, and it crashed into the ditch on the north side of the bridge, hitting an embankment, according to the crash report.
Hines was injured in the crash, but authorities haven't released information about how badly he was hurt. 
The total property damage associated with the crash is estimated at $15,000. 
At this point, no citations have been issued.
