COPIAH COUNTY, MS (Mississippi News Now) -

Mississippi Highway Patrol is on the scene of an 18-wheeler crash on I-55 northbound, north of Wesson in Copiah County. The driver was taken to Hardy Wilson Hospital in Rankin County, but we don't know his condition. A medical condition may have been a factor in the crash.

According to MHP, around 3:15 p.m., an 18-wheeler carrying dry ice ran off the road and overturned, spilling dry ice on onto the shoulder of the roadway.  

Corporal Eric Henry with MHP says says that the truck ran so far off the road that it was not blocking any lanes of traffic. 

The left lane of the highway is blocked as crews try and clean up the spill and pull the truck out of the trees.
