Interstate Reopens After Semi Overturns

Interstate 75 reopened Thursday morning after it was shut down Wednesday night. A semi over-turned in the southbound lanes near mile marker 118 in northern Fayette County.

The truck was carrying canned soup and salsa.

We're told the truck driver became sick and lost control of the trailer. He swerved and hit a guardrail. The load and diesel fuel spilled onto the highway.

The driver was taken to the hospital with non-life threatening injuries.
