Truck overturns at I-475 entrance ramp

Three trucks collided at the Eisenhower entrance of I-475 causing a tractor trailer to overturn.
MACON, Georgia (41NBC/WMGT) – Traffic had to be rerouted around the Eisenhower parkway entrance of I-475.

A tractor trailer, carrying bleach, overturned on the ramp around 2:30 this afternoon.

The tractor trailer collided with a utility truck forcing it off the road. The 18 wheeler hit a pick-up truck before over turning.

Bibb County Sheriff deputies closed the ramp while three large tow trucks pulled the 18-wheeler upright.

No one was reportedly injured in the accident.

R. L. Bell was driving the truck and says he was about to jack knife when he tried to avoid hitting a pick-up truck.

"I took this ramp to avoid an accident but I didn't have enough room,” said Bell. “So I, caught the end of a pick-up truck and another truck turned from that lane and we met at the same point causing me to hit him."

Bell was ticketed for driving to close. He says the truck that caused the accident left the scene.
