An afternoon accident involving a semi truck and a car resulted in no major injuries according to first responders, Thursday, but the incident did slow down east bound traffic on Hwy. 82 while the scene was investigated.

According to witnesses, a maroon Chrysler turned in front of a truck owned by Wagoner Trucking Company about 30 yards east of the intersection of highways 82 and 121 in Hoboken at about 2 p.m. Thursday.

The truck struck the front right section of the car and the resulting accident blocked east bound lanes forcing responders to divert traffic.  Witnesses said the car driver was attempting to enter the parking lot of Griffin’s Convenience Store when the incident occurred and that the driver was not injured.

The Calvary and Hoboken volunteer fire departments, Hoboken Police Department, Brantley County Sheriff’s Office and Brantley County Emergency Medical Service were the first on scene to the accident.

Accident investigation was turned over to the Georgia State Patrol as is usually the case in automobile accidents within the county and a trooper later arrived on-scene to file the accident report.
