Semi Truck Spills Load on 69/75

8-12-06 – Southbound traffic on Highway 67-75 was down to one lane in Bryan county Saturday morning, after a semi-truck spilled its load of plastic water pipes.

Troopers say the truck driver lost control of his 18-wheeler between Colbert and Calera around 8:30 a.m. The truck rolled onto the shoulder, leaving a mess on the highway.

The Highway Patrol says the combination of speed and slick roads caused the wreck.

Traffic was down to one lane for several hours as crews cleaned up the mess.

The trucker was taken to a local hospital with minor injuries.
