The Butler County Sheriff's Department asked more than 100 residents in the immediate area to evacuate their homes as a precaution. The driver of the truck is expected to recover. He was unconscious at the time emergency crews pulled him out of the overturned rig. The driver is being treated at Fort Hamilton Hospital.
