MAGEE, MS (Mississippi News Now) -

Commuters who need to travel Highway 49 northbound in Magee should plan for a delay after an 18-wheeler carrying gallons of milk overturned early Friday morning.

The Magee Police Department says the crash occurred just before 5 a.m. Friday at the intersection of Highway 49 and Highway 149. Drivers should avoid the area if possible, or expect major delays if traveling in that area.

Traffic is diverted to Highway 149 (old 49) through Magee.

Highway 49 northbound lanes are blocked, and MDOT reports it could take up to four hours before lanes will reopen. It is unclear what caused the truck to overturn; no one was injured in the wreck.
