The Alabama Department of Transportation reported that all lanes of interstate-65 are back open.

Original story:

Alabama State Troopers are on the scene of a tractor trailer crash along interstate 65. Right now, all southbound lanes are blocked between Moorsville Road and Priceville. Traffic is being diverted to 31 South through Decatur.

State Troopers said they’re not sure right now what caused the tractor trailer to overturn Thursday morning, but they have been able to get the truck back up off its side. It happened just before 5 a.m. Officials said the truck was hauling milk and before they can haul it off the interstate, they have to unload all the milk.
