Driver of 18-wheeler loses control, truck blocks lane for several hours

18-wheeler

LIMESTONE COUNTY, Ala. – Around 11 pm Monday,  emergency crews were called to Interstate 65 northbound, just before the Tennessee state line.

The driver of an 18-wheeler lost control in the curve and flipped the truck on it’s side. The driver was not injured, but two rolls of steel fell off the truck and went into the median.

One lane was blocked for several hours and I-65 northbound had to be shut down while crews got the truck back on its wheels.

The interstate has since been reopened.
