We are still waiting official word from law enforcement, but it appeared a tractor trailer was travelling east between the Shotwell Street and Faceville Highway exits when it ran into a stopped Georgia Department of Transportation truck.
GDOT has been working on the Bainbridge bypass throughout the day today.
