The rain may have played a role in an accident in Geneva County.

Around 11:30 a.m. Thursday, a North bound 18-wheeler slid into a ditch off State Highway 85 between Geneva and the Bellwood Community.

The driver was able to get out of his rig and walk to a nearby home to call for help.

He suffered minor injuries and was taken to an area hospital for observation.

An eyewitness said it looked like the truck hydroplaned on the slick roadway.
