Two separate tractor trailer accidents on Macon Rd .

COLUMBUS, GA (WTVM) - Just as Columbus Police were cleaning up one tractor-trailer accident on Macon Road early Tuesday morning, another one happened.

Patrol officers say a man driving a tractor-trailer full of wood chips was trying to avoid hitting two police cars when he lost control, hit one patrol car and overturned his truck.

The two police officers were outside of their vehicles and had to run to dodge being hit by the semi.

The diesel fuel in the tractor trailer spilled out causing a fire that the Columbus Fire Department quickly put out.

The truck driver made it out with a minor injury to the head.
