VALDOSTA, GA (WALB) - Traffic was back to normal in downtown Valdosta Thursday evening after being backed up Thursday afternoon when a pickup collided with a semi.
Around 12:30 p.m., Johon Gordon was driving down E. Hill Ave. on his way home from work when he crashed into the semi in the lane next to him at the intersection of E. Hill Ave. and N. Ashley St.
Gordon said he was trying to slow down as he approached the intersection, but his breaks failed. "I was comin' through the intersection. I hit the breaks. When I hit the breaks, I didn't have no breaks," Gordon explained. "I didn't really panic, I was just tryin' to slow the truck down the best I [could]."
There was no word on any charges Thursday evening.
No one was hurt.
