LIMESTONE COUNTY, AL (WAFF) -

State troopers reported a tractor trailer overturned on I-65 southbound.

The wreck happened near the 347 mile marker. The wreck shut down the southbound lanes.

Crews were able to move the truck upright. Traffic has since been allowed past the scene.

Police and a company representative said the tractor trailer was driving south on I-65 and ran into heavy winds. The trailor was empty, and the driver couldn't keep the vehicle upright so it tipped over.

The driver was reportedly not injured in the wreck.
