Pickup truck spins, blocks I-85 traffic

A pickup truck hauling a trailer of steel beams down Interstate 85 in Coweta County lost control, struck the guardrail and spun around in the highway Wednesday, blocking the two right lanes of traffic.
Around 2:30 p.m., authorities with the Coweta County Fire Department and Georgia State Patrol responded to the single vehicle accident with possible injuries around the 47 mile marker of I-85 southbound. When they arrived, they found a Ford F-150 with a trailer of steel beams had fish-tailed and was facing the opposite direction of traffic, blocking the two right lanes. According to authorities, the driver was not injured.
The two right lanes were blocked for around 30 minutes, backing traffic up about a mile and a half, authorities said.
