Police did not report any injuries to the driver of the tractor-trailer.
Officers were called to the crash on the exit ramp to I-20 East just before midnight, police said. The ramp was shut down for more than three hours as the police department’s traffic specialist unit investigated.
According to an initial investigation, Taraja Ramsess was driving a Ford F-150 and was exiting onto Wesley Chapel Road, where a tractor-trailer was broken down in the left lane. He collided with the big rig.
With the ramp shut down, police directed motorists to turn around and drive in the opposite direction to relieve the backup, according to the WSB 24-hour Traffic Center. The exit ramp was reopened just before 3:30 a.m. Wednesday.
Police said the investigation remains active.
