Apple truck flips on I-285 ramp

No serious injuries were reported when a tractor-trailer loaded with apples overturned on a DeKalb County interstate ramp early Tuesday.

The truck flipped before daybreak on the ramp from I-285 southbound to U.S. 78.

The driver trainee behind the wheel was taken to Grady Memorial Hospital with a broken arm and a shoulder injury, and his trainer was treated at Grady for minor injuries.

Crews from Rhino Services transferred the 45,000 pounds of Washington apples to another truck, but officials decided to wait until after the morning rush hour to right the overturned truck.

The wreckage partially blocked the two-lane ramp for much of the commute.
