Car slides under tractor-trailer on I-475 in Bibb County

A traffic accident closed several lanes of Interstate 475 South in Bibb County for more than an hour Saturday.

At about 10:50 a.m., a 2007 Saturn Sky convertible, driven by 68-year-old Barbara Forbes, of Sullivan, Illinois, lost control of her vehicle just past the Thomaston Road Bridge. She skid sideways into the far right lane and went under a tractor trailer driven by Johann Blakely, 28, of Sparks, according to a news release from the Bibb County Sheriff's Office.

Forbes and her passenger, Charles Forbes, 68, were taken to a local hospital where they were listed in stable condition, the release stated. There were no other injuries.

All lanes reopened at noon.
