Driver Charged in I-95 Semi Wreck

Police charged the driver of a big rig which crashed on I-95 last week, shutting down the interstate for hours. The accident happened last Thursday at the Darien exit in McIntosh County.

Georgia State Patrol says the driver, 33-year-old Joseph Gentry from Florida, fell asleep at the wheel. The truck slammed into a guard rail, turned over on its side and slid into an overpass.

Troopers charged Gentry with driving under the influence of alcohol and drugs and failure to maintain his lane. Gentry and his passenger were not seriously injured in the accident.
