Here’s a picture of the 18-wheeler that rolled in the south roundabout in Walker. The truck was carrying a load of trash, that’s what crews are picking up now. Once that’s done, they’ll move the 18-wheeler and traffic will be back open @WBRZ pic.twitter.com/pqgX2sMZPP— Sydney Kern (@sydneykern) April 27, 2018
