Minute Maid truck overturns

October 30, 2002

WORTH CO. - A semi overturned Wednesday morning on Highway 82 West, spilling hundred of gallons of fruit drink into a ditch.

No one was hurt in the wreck which happened just after 5 a.m. near the Worth and Tift County line. The driver of the semi was trying to change the radio station when he veered off the road.

The wreck slowed Westbound traffic on 82 for more than five hours, as crews worked to pull out the trailer and clean up the mess.

The driver left the Minute Maid Juice Plant in Leesburg, Florida, Tuesday night with his load. He spent the night in Tifton and was headed for Columbus.
