Debris in road blamed for wreck

TERRELL CO., GA (WALB) - Authorities say a truck carrying scrap metal caused a wreck in Terrell County.

Georgia State Patrol troopers say the driver of a Crown Victoria was headed south on Highway 520 near Old Mill Road today when she swerved to miss a piece of metal that had fallen out of a truck.

She sideswiped a semi in the other lane, hit a mailbox, and ended up on the shoulder.

The driver of the truck carrying the metal drove off.

"The witnesses said that the person picked up whatever they were trying to get out of the roadway and left," said GSP Trooper Alec Davis. "And with me not knowing who that is and what exactly the vehicle looked like, we're left to deal with the people who are on scene."

No one was injured. Troopers say the driver of the truck carrying the metal could face charges if caught.

If you have any information about the truck, call the Terrell County Sheriff's Office.
