Authorities say a crash off Interstate 80 stranded a truck driver in an Iowa creek for several hours.

The Iowa State Patrol says the crash occurred around 4 a.m. Wednesday near a Waukee exit west of Des Moines. The driver lost control of his semitrailer somehow, and it went down between the bridges over Sugar Creek. The semi landed upside down, with its cargo of produce strewn about.

Bridge construction workers found the man around 11 a.m., lying in the water, about halfway up on some pallets. He was hospitalized.

The crash is being investigated.
