Charges were pending Monday afternoon against a log truck driver whose trailer overturned and spilled logs onto a busy Lowndes County road.

Around 7:30 a.m. Monday, the truck, owned by Mac 44 Forestry Inc., was heading West on Highway 94 coming towards Valdosta. The driver was trying to turn left and head South on Perimeter Rd. to go to the mill in Clyatteville when his trailer came loose.

"As he made his left turn," said TFC. Brian Bass with the Georgia State Patrol, "some type of mechanical malfunction caused the trailer to detach from the truck and turn over into the ditch."

The clean up took a couple of hours. No one was hurt.
