DECATUR COUNTY, GA (WALB) - Traffic was snarled on a South Georgia highway after a gas tanker overturned.

The accident happened Saturday morning on Highway 27 just South of Attapulgus.

The driver of a McKenzie tanker was trying to pass a car and swerved to avoid hitting another car when he overturned.

The southbound lanes just South of East Griffin were closed for most of the day as the gas from that tanker was being transferred to another truck.

The driver of that truck suffered minor injuries.
