Tractor Trailer Accident Involving Alcohol

In July of 2013 we saw all southbound lanes on Interstate 85 near Cole Mill Road closed for hours following a tractor-trailer wreck. Reports show the tractor-trailer hit an un-marked police vehicle which was pulled over conducting  a traffic stop. The officer was injured and taken to the hospital.

The truck driver was charged with DWI and careless and reckless driving.
