      An 18-wheeler carrying thousands of pounds of aluminum overturned on Interstate 20 West near the Lincoln-Talladega exit today.

      The truck, owned by Celadon Trucking, was hauling an estimated 46,000 pounds of long metal bricks used for manufacturing before it crashed near the entrance ramp off the interstate around 12:30 p.m. The metal ripped through the truck's trailer during the accident, dumping onto the ground.

      There were no other vehicles involved and the driver wasn't injured.

      The truck has since been towed from the accident scene.
