18-Wheeler Accident Slows Morning Commute

      It turned into a bumpy ride for some Longview drivers this morning after an 18- wheeler overturned, spilling a load of rocks.

It happened around 9:30 this morning at the intersection of highway 259, also known as Eastman road and Tryon road.

Police say the driver of an 18-wheeler took a left turn too fast, and flipped, dumping the load of rocks over the roadway.

     One lane of traffic was closed to clean up the mess. The driver was ticketed for failure to control speed. No one was injured.
