Lowndes County - A tractor trailer rollover caused a big mess on Interstate 75 Monday.
Investigators think the driver of the big rig trailer fell asleep when he was getting off on Exit 11 around 8:30 Monday morning. He ran off the side of the exit ramp and rolled over into a steep ditch.
The truck was carrying 35 thousand pounds of copper tubing.
Exit 11 south bound was closed for about five hours as workers cleaned up the mess.
