CHATHAM CO., GA (WTOC) - A wreck involving an overturned semi caused heavy delays on I-95 northbound at SR 21/Augusta Road (MP 109) in Chatham County Monday morning.
Port Wentworth police tell us the driver of a tractor-trailer either fell asleep or wasn't paying attention when they came in contact with another vehicle around 1:30 a.m. Monday morning. The semi-truck overturned and the vehicle involved ran off the road into the wood-line and hit a tree.
No major injuries have been reported.
A second crash involving a semi-truck that crashed into the back of a Port Wentworth police cruiser happened not long after this crash in the same area of I-95, causing the interstate to shut down completely in both directions. At least one lane in both directions has since reopened to traffic, but delays can still be expected in the area. Please use caution.
