Traffic on Hwy. 247 northbound is blocked following an accident Friday with a car and tractor trailer.

Emergency crews were dispatched to the seen at about 3:04 p.m. at Hwy 247 and Avondale Mill Road.

The semi was making a left turn from Hawkinsville Road to Avondale Mill Road when the driver of a Crown Victoria, who was holding his hand in front of his face as if shielding the sun, drove under the truck, according to Bibb County sheriff's Lt. Sean DeFoe.

The driver of the car was transported to the Medical Center of Central Georgia with minor injuries. The truck driver was not injured.

At about 4:15 p.m., DeFoe said traffic lanes should be back open shortly.
