An overturned 18-wheeler on I-65 in Mobile has blocked a number of lanes on the Interstate.

Around 7 p.m. on Monday, June 11, the tractor-trailer overturned in the southbound lanes of I-65 just south of Airport Boulevard.

All southbound lanes of I-65 are blocked in this area. Traffic is being diverted to the Airport Boulevard exit just north of the accident.

According to Mobile Fire-Rescue, the driver of the truck and another person were taken to the hospital. The extent of their injuries are unknown.

The 18-wheeler was hauling a trailer with three fork lifts, which also had to be removed from the roadway.

Fortunately the rain we saw earlier in the day held off as clean-up was underway.
