Traffic in the northwest bound lanes of the Liberty Bypass was stopped by a major wreck. This location is between Nottingham Way and Slappey Blvd.

A semi truck has overturned, spilling a load of metal across both lanes.

It took about 7 hours to clear the area.

Drivers were heavily encouraged to seek another route.

Traffic heading toward the mall was re-routed toward Slappey Blvd.

Police said 44 year old Romanuel Hird was headed to Phenix City Alabama when his truck had a mechanical issue and he lost control.

Hird was transported to the hospital with non life threatening injuries.
