The driver of an 18-wheeler has been cited after a tanker truck overturned in the French Quarter.

The truck tipped near the intersection of Decatur and Esplanade just after 7:15 Tuesday morning. Police say the driver was able to escape unharmed.

Officials state that balcony posts outside of the businesses prevented the truck from tipping completely over. The scene has since been cleared.

The driver was cited for improper turning and driving in a no truck route.
