Tractor-Trailer Overturns in Jones County, Georgia
JONES COUNTY, GA. – According to an online news story published at wgxa.tv, a tractor-trailer overturned January 15 in Jones County, Georgia. The cause of the accident is not yet clear, and the driver of the tractor-trailer has not been identified. It does not appear that anyone was seriously injured.*
The accident occurred in the afternoon on January 15, but it is not clear exactly what time. A tractor-trailer was traveling on Eatonton Highway in Jones County. Near the line between Jones County and Putnam County, Georgia, the tractor-trailer somehow overturned on the highway.
The driver of the tractor-trailer has not been identified. The Jones County Sheriff’s Office initially believed the driver was injured but later reported that no one was seriously injured in the crash, including the driver. Emergency responders did have to free the driver from the wrecked truck, but it is not clear if he required any medical treatment beyond the scene.
After the crash, traffic on the highway was blocked to allow crews to turn the tractor-trailer upright and remove it from the scene. Drivers were encouraged to find alternate routes during this time.
“At least one lane of traffic will be closed for several hours,” said a release from the Jones County Sheriff’s Office. “So if you can’t avoid the area, expect delays.”
Reports indicate the driver of the tractor-trailer might have lost control of the vehicle and overturned because he was coughing. This information has not been confirmed. Investigation is ongoing, and no further information has been reported at this time.
