Traffic backed up for miles after truck overturns on I-59 SB in Tuscaloosa Co

FOSTERS, Ala. (WIAT) — Two people were injured Thursday afternoon after an 18-wheeler struck an abandoned vehicle on 59 SB at mile marker 62.

CBS 42’s Jack Royer responded to the scene. He reports traffic is backed up about six to eight miles long from the scene of the wreck. One southbound lane is closed, and Alabama State Troopers remain on the scene. Consider taking Highway 11 to Fosters as an alternate route.

State Troopers told Royer the two victims were transported to DCH for treatment. We’ll update this story as we learn more.
