DECATUR COUNTY, GA (WALB) - An 18-wheeler ended up stuck in a ditch this morning.

50-year old Timothy Leftwich of Florida was traveling north on Highway 27 in Decatur County. Georgia State Troopers say the driver most likely fell asleep at the wheel.

The tractor trailer ran off the road and plunged down this embankment. Leftwich was stuck inside until emergency workers got him out.

He was taken to the hospital with only minor injuries. Feedback
