Valdosta-- A South Georgia man is arrested after ramming four cars off the interstate with his truck.

Twenty-seven-year-old Charles Surrency, of Adel, faces a list of traffic charges, and a felony drug charge. Around 7:00 Friday night, he was driving south on I-75 in Cook County in his Ford F-350 truck.

He started ramming other vehicles, running four cars filled with families headed to Florida on spring vacation, off the road.

State troopers finally stopped Surrency when one of his tires went flat. Authorities found a substantial amount of crack cocaine in his truck.

He's now charged with DUI, wreckless driving, and four counts of leaving the scene of an accident and following to closely, and felony drug charges. Luckily, none of the travelers were seriously hurt.

Surrency was taken to the Lowndes County jail.
