Update: Trooper First Class Cal Barton with Georgia State Patrol said at about 8:09 a.m. this morning a tractor trailer overturned on Highway 138. It was carrying lumber inside a closed trailer.

“It was traveling east on Highway 138 and attempting to get onto Highway 78. The driver, Natalie Ray, 40, from McDonough, received minor injures,” Barton said. She made the first right turn and then when she curved back to the left, she was traveling too fast for conditions and the vehicle overturned.”

Barton said Ray was cited for traveling too fast for conditions and given a warning for failing to maintain lane. Barton said the injuries she received were minor and she was not transported to any medical facility. The load did not spill and the tractor trailer was towed away.
