A tractor-trailer driver was going too fast on the ramp from I-75 North to I-285 West in Clayton County, causing the vehicle to overturn and block the ramp for nearly four hours Wednesday morning, authorities said.
The crash was reported around 5 a.m., according to the Georgia Department of Transportation. Delays quickly piled up as crews worked to upright the big rig. Workers also had to clean up diesel fuel that had spilled onto the road, Clayton police said.
The ramp reopened shortly before 9 a.m. Police said the driver complained of minor injuries but was not taken to a hospital. It was not clear if the driver faced any charges.
