Many commutes this morning are impacted by road closures due to flooding or storm debris, but several crashes caused delays as well.

In Dade County, I-59 northbound was closed for over an hour as crews worked to clear a semi that crashed onto its side. It happened at MM 16 between Highway 136 and Slygo Road. The driver was taken to the hospital in Marion County with minor injuries. An official on scene says that the driver may have fallen asleep at the wheel.

On I-75 in Whitfield County, several northbound lanes were closed during the morning commute due to another semi crash. This crash is north of Carbondale Road. No word of any injuries at this time.
