SAN MARCOS, Texas (KXAN) - A semitruck veered off of Interstate 35 overnight in San Marcos, ending up in a hotel pool.
The crash happened about 12:15 a.m. after the truck heading south on I-35 lost control, crossed a grassy median and three access road lanes before hitting the hotel sign and ending up in the hotel pool.

An ambulance took the driver to Central Texas Regional Medical Center with minor injuries, and staff later released him around 5:30 a.m. There were no other injuries in the wreck.
