ALBANY, GA (WALB) - A wreck in Lee County snarled traffic for about an hour Friday evening.

Just before six o'clock this white Chevy Pick up truck was headed North on US 19.  An Oxford Construction Company truck turned in front of the pickup at Cedric Road.

They collided and knocked down a crossing signal.

State troopers cited Cutis Palan, the driver of the construction truck, with failure to yield.  A toddler in that vehicle was not hurt.

The driver of the pickup suffered a cut on his head, but was not taken to the hospital.
