EFFINGHAM CO., GA (WTOC) -

A truck driver says he's thankful nobody was injured after his semi truck's trailer bent out of shape Saturday afternoon.

It happened around 4 p.m. on U.S. 80 in Effingham County.

The truck driver, Michael Burkett, said he was hauling chips when he heard the trailer on his truck buckle after going over an old bridge.

"I've driven this route for 20 years and have heard of other trucks being folded by this bridge," said Burkett.

U.S. 80 was shut down for a few minutes so officials could get the truck off the main roadway and into the emergency lane.

No one was injured in the incident.
