Semi overturns on Jimmy Deloach Pkwy

PORT WENTWORTH, GA (WTOC) -

An overturned tractor trailer caused major traffic delays during Tuesday's morning commute.

Police say the driver of a semi was turning onto Jimmy Deloach Parkway near Highway 21 in Port Wentworth when the trucks weight shifted and the trailer tipped over leaving a huge shipping container in the middle of the road. 

One side of the parkway was blocked by the wreckage, forcing police to detour two-way traffic into one of the opposite lanes. 

No one was hurt and the road has since re-opened.
