Tractor Trailer vs. Straight Truck
I77@45mm

The straight truck was placing signs along the side of the roadway reference lane closing, and did a U-turn directly in front of the tractor trailer.  The Hispanic males in the straight truck had minor head injuries, and the driver of the tractor trailer had minor back injuries.  The tanker was empty but had bleach residue in the trailer.  The straight truck was bent almost into a L shape.  The road was shut down for about 1 hour.
