Tractor trailer overturns on busy highway

RICHMOND HILL, GA (WTOC) -

A truck driver had a close call Saturday night in Richmond Hill.

Officials said the driver of the tractor trailer was turning into a truck stop off U.S. Highway 17 at Interstate 95. He tried to pass another truck but didn't quite make the turn. The truck landed on its side in a ditch. Fortunately, the driver was not hurt.

"The load just probably made him tip over," said Richmond Hill Fire Chief Vernon Rushing. "He wasn't doing but a mile or two an hour. He just got over-centered. It just fell over. We got some tow trucks coming. We'll get him out of here in a little while."

Rushing said the truck was carrying produce. Other than a broken mirror, the truck didn't appear to be damaged.
