 Thursday, April 2, 2015


One person was injured in an accident between a truck pulling a flatbed trailer and an 18-wheeler on Saturday.It happened on Highway 36 between Hartselle and Somerville near the intersection with Hobb Ward Road around 4:30 PM. Troopers on the scene said the 18-wheeler struck the trailer and hit the guard rail, one wheel of the truck dangling over the stream below.
This blocked traffic in both directions for more than an hour. Police say they called Department of Transportation crews to determine how to mend the guard rail. They believe the bridge will still be safe to drive on.
