Wreck involving overturned truck shuts down Hwy. 16 E.
By JOHN A. WINTERS
Traffic was closed on Georgia Highway 16 E. for about three hours after an accident Thursday.
The accident occurred just west of Georgia Highway 54 when a westbound landscaping truck driven by Matthew Shane Bussey crossed the centerline, according to Georgia State Patrol Senior Trooper Kelvin Searcy.
Rescue workers had to sweep all the dirt and debris off the roadway and then hosed it down with water from a Coweta County Fire Department truck.
Searcy said there were only minor injuries reported, adding Bussey was charged with failure to maintain lane.
