Semi truck rolls over

January 18, 2006

Grady County -- Investigators are trying to narrow down the cause of a truck accident in Grady County. The tractor-trailer overturned at 11:00AM on Highway-84 eastbound, just before the Thomas County line. It was the only vehicle involved.

The truck drifted off the shoulder for about 300-yards and hit a raised driveway, which led to the roll-over.

Troopers say they're trying to figure out what caused the driver to leave the roadway. "I had some witnesses state the subject wasn't driving that fast, probably about 55 miles per hour, so speed wasn't involved in it," said GSP Master Trooper Ricardo Bowdry. "The speed limit on this road is 55."

The truck was driven by James McDonald of Alabama. The 53-year-old complained of back pain and was taken to Archbold Hospital, where he's undergoing tests.
