TUSCALOOSA, Ala. (WIAT) – According to Tuscaloosa police, both ramps of the 35th Street exit on I-359 in Tuscaloosa were closed Thursday morning due to an 18-wheeler losing its 54,000 pound load.

The accident happened just before 8:30 a.m. on Thursday, July 18.

Two tow trucks were called to the scene but were not able to move what was a heat exchanger, so a crane had to be brought in to remove the piece of equipment.

Officials expected lanes to be blocked off until noon Thursday afternoon.

Nobody was injured.
