Dog Missing After Tractor Trailer Accident

Traffic is moving again along Interstate 75 in Scott County, but an overturned tractor trailer caused quite a backup this morning.

The road was down to one lane for nearly six hours while emergency crews tried to figure out how to remove the wreckage.

Police think the driver fell asleep while coming down an off-ramp.

The truck hit a light pole before overturning.

The driver is at home now recovering from a gash on the head.

All lanes re-opened just before eleven.

The truck driver had a miniature long haired dachshund named Gizmo in the truck when he crashed.

The dog jumped out of the truck and ran away.

If you see him you're asked to call Georgetown Police.
