Lowndes County-- A tractor trailer carrying 48,000 pounds of water to Florida flipped on Interstate 75 Tuesday.

Just before 10:00AM, the truck driver ran off the road to avoid rear-ending a car. The truck hit a culvert and overturned, near Exit 5 in Lake Park. It took about nine hours to clean up the mess and load the water into another truck.

"The water that's on the truck right now, if it wasn't so important to reach the destination it was going, it would've probably been scrapped out and loaded with a back hoe and put in the dump," said Scott Mason of A-1 Towing.

The driver of the truck was not injured. Most of the water was salvaged and is on its way once again to Ft. Pierce Florida.
