Big rig blocks highway

January 24, 2003

Randolph County-- A 18-wheeler crash blocked a South Georgia highway almost all day.

54-year old Adair Sprouse was hauling a load of lumber around 10:00 Friday morning on highway 82 East of Cuthbert.

He went around a curve too fast, and the truck and trailer flipped on its side, sending tons of lumber all over the highway.

Crews worked until about 4:30 PM cleaning up the mess. Sprouse is recovering from injuries.

Luckily, His truck did not hit any other vehicles and no one else was hurt.
