The chunk fell 60 feet below the ramp and luckily did not hit the interstate.

A truck slammed into the wall of an exit ramp at Spaghetti Junction early Monday morning, sending a 22-foot section of concrete tumbling more than 50 feet to the ground.

It fell onto a grassy area near the shoulder of the interstate below, and no one was reported injured, according to Channel 2 Action News.

The WSB 24-hour Traffic Center first reported the crash just before 6 a.m. Since then, parts of the ramp from I-285 East to I-85 North in DeKalb County have been closed for cleanup and repair.

Drivers avoiding the area crowded onto nearby on-ramps, causing heavy delays during the Monday morning rush, the Traffic Center reported.

One left lane remains closed, the news station reported. The Georgia Department of Transportation has not provided an estimated time of clearance.

In the meantime, crews have plugged the hole with a temporary barrier.
