VALDOSTA, GA (WALB) -

A semi truck accident caused a minor early morning traffic jam in Valdosta.

Just before 8 a.m. at the intersection of Inner Perimeter Road and Bemiss Road, a trailer came loose from the truck that was pulling it. No one was hurt and no other cars were involved, but Police remind you to be cautious around semis.
 
"Keep your distance from 'em, stay out of their blind spots, don't ride right beside 'em," emphasized Valdosta Police Department Lieutenant Aaron Kirk. "If you have to pass, try and pass 'em on the left because sometimes they have to swing wide if they're tryin' to make a right turn. They do have a lot of blind spots that you need to be aware of."
 
The semi was attempting to turn off of Inner Perimeter and head North on Bemiss when the trailer came loose.
