Lee County- Troopers say 52 year old Gary Hollingsworth of Nahunta was driving down the off ramp onto highway 82 in Lee County when he lost his load of PVC pipes.

The truck's bed and cab flipped over. The 250 pound pipes rolled into both lanes causing minor damage to another semi and a small car.

Truck driver Coy McCarter witnesses the wreck and says Hollingsworth was just going too fast.

"That curve there I think is a 35. Do 30 around the curve. It's only common sense. I've been doing this 20 years and I see it just about all the time now," McCarter says.

It took crews more than an hour to get the truck out of the way. Hollingsworth was taken to the hospital for minor injuries. He is charged with driving too fast for conditions and having an unsecured load. No one else was injured.
