Tractor-trailers collide, spilling load on I-20

Accident on I-20 in Carroll County

CARROLL COUNTY, Ga. — Several tractor-trailers crashed early Friday morning making a mess on Interstate 20 in Carroll County.

The crash happened near Highway 61 and authorities blocking the road as crews cleaned up.

Authorities believe a tractor-trailer was traveling eastbound on I-20 near mile marker 23, when for unknown reasons, the truck ran off the right shoulder of the roadway. The driver overcorrected and re-entered the roadway.

After re-entering the roadway, the truck overturned on its side. Two tractor trailers that were traveling eastbound struck the trailer of the truck that had overturned in the roadway, causing the truck to lose its load.

The overturned truck was carrying motor oil and liquid fertilizer, which spilled onto the expressway.

There were three injuries in the crash, with one person being taken to Grady Memorial Hospital.
