The Jacksonville Sheriff's Office and Jacksonville Fire and Rescue crews are working to figure out how a JFRD tanker flipped into a ditch Wednesday morning on the Westside.

The man driving JFRD tanker No. 52 was uninjured after the tanker rolled into a ditch, according to JSO.

The tanker ended up in a ditch around 3:45 a.m. off Collins Road and Parramore Road, just west of Interstate 295.

The roadway was cleared as the scene of the crash was off to the side of the road in a wooded area.

Authorities don't know how the tanker rolled into a ditch, but said it was responding to a call during that time.
