HINDS COUNTY, MS (WLBT) - Part of Interstate-55 was shut down Monday after a wreck involving an 18-wheeler.

It happened South of Terry, near the Hinds-Copiah county line.

Mississippi Highway Patrol spokesman James Walker said a truck hauling sand swerved to avoid an M-DOT truck that was pulling onto the highway from the median.

The two trucks collided, and the 18-wheeler turned over.

Walker said the truck driver and two people from the M-DOT truck were taken to a hospital with minor injuries.
