Overturned tractor trailer ties up morning commute

SAVANNAH, GA (WTOC) - An overturned tractor-trailer snarled traffic for several hours Wednesday morning on Chatham Parkway.

Just before 8 a.m. the driver of an 18-wheeler lost control as he was attempting to exit the ramp off of Interstate 16 eastbound.

Officers say a tire blew, causing the trailer bed of the truck to overturn near the ramp. Police spent several hours redirecting traffic as the trailer emptied and towed away.

No injuries were reported.
