Big Rig Wrecks on I-16

It was a wild run for one big-rig driver this afternoon. Just before 1pm, William Copeland was driving his semi west on I-16. All of a sudden, another driver cut him off just before the I-95 exit. Copeland swerved to avoid smashing into other cars and his truck jackknifed, skidding out of control and ending up in the woods along the interstate.

"I believe the Good Lord had to have a hand in it, no one else got hurt, I crossed two lanes of traffic--twice--and no one got hurt," he said.

More than an hour later, a big-rig wrecker showed up to tow Copeland's truck out of the woods.
