Overturned vehicle closes I-16 East for 30 minutes

An overturned vehicle closed eastbound traffic on Interstate 16 east near the Interstate 75 split for a half hour Wednesday afternoon.

Traffic also was backed up on I-75 in both directions approaching the I-16 junction.

A Dodge Durango collided with a Honda Accord at about 3 p.m. on the bridge over the Ocmulgee River. The Dodge rolled over several times and landed on its roof, according to a Bibb County Sheriff’s Office news release.

The driver of the Dodge and her three children were taken to a local hospital where they were listed in stable condition Wednesday afternoon, according to the release.

Anyone with information about the crash is asked to call the sheriff’s office at 751-7500 and ask to leave a message for the “on-call” traffic investigator.
