Eastbound lanes of U.S. 70, just to the east of the overpass at North Main Street/U.S. 285 just north of Roswell’s city limits, are closed as emergency crews deal with an overturned 18-wheel truck.
Traffic will be diverted for some time while the accident is taken care of. Motorists should seek alternates routes.
The Roswell Fire Department responded to the scene shortly after 2:30 p.m. Wednesday. The semi-truck, carrying a load of watermelons, is the lone vehicle involved and its only occupant was the driver, whose injuries are minor.
