Tractor trailer crash slows traffic on I-75

It is slow going on Interstate 75 in Madison County.

A tractor trailer crashed in the southbound lanes just before 5 a.m. Thursday near exit 77. At one point, all three lanes were closed.

At noon, two of those three lanes had reopened.

Witnesses say a flatbed truck carrying steel veered off the right side of the road, over-corrected, overturned and caught fire.

The driver of the truck went to the hospital in Berea.

Police say amazingly he had only minor injuries.

Before one lane reopened, traffic was backed up for at least two miles.
