Wreck Snarls Interstate Traffic

An accident on the interstate in Lauderdale County Wednesday afternoon sent at least one person to the hospital and caused some traffic headaches.

It apparently happened after a vehicle that had pulled over to the side of the road came back onto I-20/59 near Russell.

An SUV swerved to miss it and hit an 18-wheeler. Both the 18 wheeler and SUV left the road and the SUV flipped.

At least one person in the SUV was taken to a local hospital. The driver of the 18-wheeler was treated at the scene for minor injuries.
