Big Rig Overturns on Highway 28

Earlier this week, a semi truck overturned on Highway 28. The incident happened in Copiah County, just east of Hazlehurst. According to WJTV News Channel 12, the big rig was hauling 43,000 containers of windshield wiper fluid at the time of the crash. Initial reports from the Mississippi Department of Environmental Quality indicate that none of the fluid was spilled onto the roadway.

According to the driver, a car crossed over the centerline, and he turned off the road to avoid it. Thankfully, no injuries were reported. Any time 18-wheelers are involved in crashes, the potential for danger is very high. They are so much larger and heavier than traditional passenger vehicles, and they don’t stop on a dime.
