Motorists were diverted for two and a half hours Tuesday morning after a dump truck hauling gravel overturned at 7:50 a.m. Tuesday on Hawkinsville Road in Bibb County.
Timmy Southern, 48, from Easley, S.C., was turning his 18-wheeler into the Fox Appliance Store when he swung wide into the far right lane and collided with a dump truck driven by 37-year-old Donte Beard, of Macon, said Sgt. Sean Defoe, public information officer for the Bibb County Sheriff's Office.
Paramedics checked Southern on the scene and Beard went to the hospital, Defoe said.
No citations were immediately issued and the road cleared at 10:30 a.m., he said.
