Disabled semi slows morning eastbound traffic on I-16

Posted: Updated:
BRYAN CO., GA (WTOC) -

A disabled tractor trailer on I-16 eastbound Tuesday morning caused minor traffic delays. 

Officials say the driver of the semi was traveling on I-16 East Tuesday morning when the truck slightly veered off of the road causing the weight to shift. That's when the trailer of truck split in half. The semi was carrying rolls of paper. 

Bryan County deputies responded to the scene. The truck was able to move out of travel lanes and onto the right shoulder so they only had to close the right eastbound lane briefly in order for tow crews to remove the semi.

The lane has since reopened.
