A Texas truck driver was charged on suspicion of aggravated DWI Sunday after the truck he was driving rolled over on Interstate 70, blocking two lanes of traffic.

The single tractor-trailer rollover at about 9 p.m. blocked both eastbound lanes of I-70. According to the Missouri State Highway Patrol, the crash occurred when Juan Gonzalez, 44, of Laredo, drove off the right side of the road. He wasn't injured, said Boone County Fire Protection District Assistant Chief Gale Blomenkamp.

The crash occurred at the 117 mile marker, near routes J and O and the Huntsdale and Harrisburg exit.

Gonzalez was being held on $4,500 bail in the Boone County Jail.
