The truck has been remove from the ditch, this took a while as-the cab of the truck was hanging out over a creek. The road was shut down until the truck was removed and the guard rail can be replaced. The driver was reported to have lost his breaks and ended up in the ditch.
The first wrecker that came was from Florida and he wasn't able to get the truck off the culvert due to snapping both cables . Two more heavy tow trucks came from Kinsey ( Superman and Bulldog) and were able to remove the ruck with causing more damage. The guard rail was all that was holding up the truck.
the cause of the crash is under investigation by Alabama State Troopers.
