The Colbert County Emergency Management Agency is responding to an overturned 18-wheeler at the intersection of Alabama 157 and Alabama 20.

Alabama State Trooper say it happened about 5:20 a.m.

The truck was carrying raw chicken which is why it is taking so long to clean up.

A passenger was taken to Helen Keller Hospital with possible broken ribs.

Troopers don't think the incident is weather related but it is under investigation.

Drivers are encouraged to avoid the area if possible. Be safe and expect delays if you cannot.
