ALBANY, GA (WALB) –  An accident blocked the flow of traffic in the South bound lane of U. S. 19 at Ledo Road. about 8:30AM.

Five vehicles, including an APD HEAT car were involved in the wreck.

Troopers say 39-year-old Glenn Graves turned his pickup truck into the path of a Honda Accord, driven by 39-year-old Tracie Lanier.

When they collided, Graves' truck spun and hit another truck. Minutes later, a Toyota Avalon hit an APD HEAT unit.

No one was seriously injured in either wreck.

The pickup truck driver who caused the first wreck is charged with failure to yield the right of way.

Albany Police department spokeswoman Phyllis Whitley Banks says that Corporal Larold Dent, 36, was responding to an accident with injuries at North Slappey Boulevard and Ledo Road. 

Corporal Dent was in the left turn lane when he was struck by a 2009 blue Toyota Avalon.  Dent is doing fine.
