FOX 5 Atlanta reports that a diesel fuel spill in the suburban Atlanta region of Hall County shut down Interstate 985 on the evening of Wednesday, November 25 for a period of time.
The incident occurred around 9 p.m. Wednesday evening, when a tractor-trailer jack-knifed in the southern traffic lanes of Interstate 985. The truck hit a guardrail, spilling around 150 gallons of diesel fuel onto the roadway. No injuries were reported, but due to hazardous conditions and the need for immediate environmental mitigation cleanup efforts, all southbound traffic was diverted off the highway at Exit 12 (Spout Springs Road.) Spill cleanup took around an hour.
WGXA News reported recently that Bibb County Sheriff’s Office stated two people were killed in a wreck around 6:30 p.m. Tuesday night on the Sardis Church Road extension near Walden Road. A Nissan Altima driven by a 42-year-old Cochran man crossed over the center median into the eastbound lane of the roadway, striking a Chevy Camaro driven by a 58-year-old Macon woman.
