Overturned Log truck on Hwy. 98 brings traffic to a halt

HATTIESBURG, MS (WDAM) - A Log truck rollover on Hardy Street in Hattiesburg wreaked havoc with lunch time traffic Wednesday.

The accident happened around 11:30 a.m. in the west bound lane near Westover Drive. The driver of the truck was attempting to turn onto Highway 98 off the I-59 off ramp and apparently cut his turn to sharp causing the trailer to turn over.

All three west bound lanes were closed for lengthy periods of time while the logs were cleared from the road. Traffic going east on Hardy and coming off the south bound lane of the interstate were also slowed.

All three lanes were cleaned up and re-opened shortly after 2:00 p.m. No injuries were reported.
