VALDOSTA — Shortly after 11 p.m. Monday, a man traveling eastbound on the North Valdosta Road lost control of his vehicle and ran into a ditch in front of Riverside Memorial Cemetery, according to authorities. The truck left the ditch, crossed the entrance of the cemetery and entered a second ditch, where it flipped and came to a stop upside down, say authorities. The driver was able to get out of the vehicle before the truck sank farther into mud and water, covering much of the cab, authorities said. The driver suffered minor leg and groin injuries and was able to cross the road to the One Stop convenience store on the corner of North Valdosta Road and Val Del Road, where 911 was notified, according to authorities. A Georgia State Trooper on the scene stated that the cause of the accident was still under investigation.
