ALBANY, GA (WALB) - An overturned semi is blocking at least one lane on US Highway 82, near the Lee County and Terrell County line, Tuesday morning.

The Georgia State Patrol responded to the call, which came in at 3:11 AM.

The GSP said the driver was east bound in the outside lane, and swerved to miss some deer.

The Alabama based Piggly Wiggly truck was loaded with groceries, and no one was injured in the wreck.

Officials hope to have the truck moved by 10:00 AM.
