Semi Turns Over On Icy Interstate

A truck driver is recovering after a crash on an icy interstate in Scott County.

Police say James Bundy was driving south on I-75 at mile marker 130 when a van traveling in front of him lost control on the ice.

Police say Bundy tried to avoid hitting the van and lost control, hitting the concrete barrier. His truck overturned and spilled its load on both the north and southbound lanes.

Bundy was taken to Georgetown Community Hospital, but there's no word in his condition.

Three lanes of southbound I-75 were closed until 1:00 a.m. Friday. Police had to re-route northbound traffic through a weigh station.

The accident scene is now clear.

    Steve when you go to get milk, any supplies you go to the store for and it isnt on the shelf, Please dont get angry cause the truck drivers may not feel safe to bring it to you. trucks bring in almost everything you eat, drink , wear and use so thank the truck drivers instead of condemning them. its funny when a 4 wheeler causes an accident with a semi the semi somehow is to blame... read the story , he swerved to miss the car.. in other words his risked his life to keep from hitting someone else.... You know i bet he would rather have been at home on his computer with his family in a warm home than being out on the icy roads ou think so ?????

    Wow! This article is sure written up much different than it was this morning.. What happen to the original article? I guess when they updated the article this evening it was decided to leave out the details they gave this morning.

    Yeah , it would figure it would be illegals. They think if you cause a crash, then run, you won't get into trouble. That's how it's done in mexico.

    Neither vehicle should've been on the roadway. His metal shipment wasn't worth losing his life for, and the van driver's illegal merge wasn't worth anyone's life either. If the people would stop being stupid and stay home when ice is literally falling to the ground we wouldn't have these type of crashes.
