A tractor trailer carrying utility trailers overturned in Cherokee County this morning completely blocking Highway 68 East at the County Road 77 intersection. The truck driver was treated and released at the scene.
Cherokee County EMA officials were called to the scene because of a fuel leak coming from the truck. Both sides of Highway 68 were shut down for an extended period of time as officials worked to remove multiple utility trailers from the road. State Troopers are continuing to investigate the cause of the accident.
