COLUMBUS, Miss (WCBI)-An overturned truck hauling peanuts left traffic at a standstill this afternoon.
It happened on Highway 82 east just before the military road exit.
The driver of the truck says he was driving eastbound and tried to move to the left lane when he saw an oncoming car on the ramp.
That’s when he says he lost control.
The truck, went over the median, into the west bound lane and flipped on its side, scattering thousands of peanuts across sides of the highway.
Amazingly, the driver of the truck was not seriously hurt.
He managed to pull himself out and escaped with just scrapes and bruises.
