HUNTSVILLE, Ala. – Traffic was very slow-moving on Interstate 565 east for much of the day Tuesday due to a wreck involving two dump trucks.
It happened about 12 p.m. The two trucks lost their load near the Oakwood Avenue exit, impacting eastbound traffic for about five hours.
One of the dump trucks spilled gravel. Another truck was brought in, and crews loaded the spilled material on it to haul away.
Huntsville Police blocked drivers entering I-565 from getting on, so they wouldn’t get stuck in the long line of traffic.
Traffic started moving again about 5 p.m.
