Overturned truck slows down traffic in Decatur

DECATUR, Ala. – A wreck involving two tractor-trailers impacted morning traffic on 6th Avenue and on Highway 20.

Police tell us there were only minor injuries as a result of the wreck, but the cleanup took a couple of hours.

The wreck happened at the intersection of Wilson Street and 6th Avenue. One of the two trucks involved overturned.

Police say one northbound lane on 6th Avenue was open and one eastbound lane on Highway 20 was open. The truck was flipped back over just before 11 a.m., and crews said it would take another 30-45 minutes to clear the area.

Traffic is back to normal in the area.
