PEARLAND -- A cement truck crashed in Pearland Tuesday afternoon.

Pearland police said around 1:00 p.m., a cement truck was traveling north in the 3200 block of FM 1128/Manvel Road when it left the roadway. The momentum of the truck and weight of loaded concrete caused the truck to flip over in the ditch.

The driver was not seriously injured.

FM 1128 was closed for more than two hours while crews worked to move the truck.

Classes at a middle school and high school located near the crash site were not affected.
