S-curve mishap blocks I-59 traffic in Laurel

An early morning accident had traffic backed up for miles on Interstate 59 in Laurel Monday.

Around 9 o'clock a cattle trailer pulled by a small pickup broke and turned over in the southbound lane of the S-curve.

It took a little over an hour to clean up the scene of the accident because the cattle had to be transferred into another wagon before traffic was able to move again.
