An overturned tractor trailer has completely blocked all southbound lanes of I-65.

A white pickup truck is also on the scene with heavy damage.

The Mobile Fire-Rescue Department reports:

At approximately 18:24 hours, Mobile Fire-Rescue Department personnel were dispatched to I-65 southbound near the Airport Boulevard overpass for an overturned 18-wheeler. The truck reportedly struck the median wall just before overturning. All lanes of traffic on I-65 South were interrupted by the overturned vehicle. Mobile Fire-Rescue transported the truck's driver to a local hospital for definitive care. No word has been released regarding the extent of the driver's injuries. A 2nd patient was transported by MFRD in a 2nd, unrelated motor vehicle collision in the area. The Alabama Department of Transportation is on scene to assist in mitigation.
