18-wheeler wrecks, pins car to guardrail in Montgomery

MONTGOMERY, AL (WSFA) - An accident involving an 18-wheeler and several cars on the I-85/I-65 Interchange is clear, and traffic is once again flowing smoothly.

The crash happened around 7:00am Tuesday as the 18-wheeler was rounding the curve of the connecting ramp from I-65 South to I-85 North. The truck lost control of its load and pinned a white automobile against the guardrail.

Authorities are reporting only minor injuries in the wreck.

Delays lasted for several hours as police officers erected barricades to keep cars from entering the ramp. Commuters had to reroute at least one exit down and make their way back to the interstate via side roads.
