Temporary Detour On 1-49 Due To Truck Accident


Traffic was temporarily detoured along I-49 Saturday morning after a truck knocked down a utility pole. The accident occurred close to mile marker 94, just outside of Milo. The driver of the truck says he hit a patch of black ice.

The vehicle went over the embankment, hit a utility pole and knocked down live wires.  

The driver of the truck walked away with no injuries, but I-49 was temporarily re-routed while crews worked to safely remove the wires.
