Tanker truck overturns

An overturned tractor trailer blocked a portion of Macon Road on Thursday morning following a one-vehicle accident Wednesday night. According to the GSP, the Peterbilt Bobtail ran off the road when its driver swerved to miss hitting a deer while traveling northbound on Macon Road around 10:40 p.m. Wednesday. The truck then traveled down an embankment, overturning on the driver’s side. The driver was identified by GSP as Bobby Nix, 63, of Ellijay. An investigation into the incident is continuing.
