A wreck on Ga Highway 21 and Grange Road in Port Wentworth had traffic tied up for several hours morning Monday.
A truck slammed into the back of an 18-wheeler that was stopped on the side of the road shortly before 3:30 a.m. Monday.
The driver of the truck suffered serious injuries to his leg and was transported to Memorial University Medical Center. The driver of the semi was not hurt.
Investigators say the trailer of the semi somehow became detached and the driver pulled over and was putting out cones to alert other drivers when a truck came along and didn't have enough time to stop, slamming right into the back of the semi.
Police had to block off one of the northbound lanes of Ga. 21 right at Grange Rd. for close to 3-hours while crews cleared the wreckage from the road.
The wreck has been cleared and all lanes of Ga. 21 were reopened by 6 a.m.
