WARNER ROBINS -- No one was injured Saturday afternoon when a tractor-trailer jackknifed, closing three lanes of northbound Interstate 475 for a few hours, a Bibb County sheriffs spokesman said.
Oscar Miller, 64, of Cohutta, the operator and owner of the tractor-trailer, was not hurt in the single-vehicle crash at 1:34 p.m. near Mile Marker 6, said Bibb County Lt. Sean DeFoe, public information officer.
Miller told authorities he came up behind another vehicle that had come to a near stop on the interstate, slammed on the brakes and moved into another lane to avoid hitting the vehicle, DeFoe said.
The tractor-trailer skidded, hitting the concrete median and causing the tractor-trailer to jackknife, DeFoe said.
