A cargo of peanuts were strewn along Highway 82 after an 18-wheeler overturned on Sunday afternoon near the Military Road exit. The driver of rig told police he saw a car merging onto the highway from the ramp and was attempting to move into the left lane when he lost control. The 18-wheeler then crossed over the median and into the west bound lane before it overturned. Police blocked one lane of traffic while they attempted to tow the rig and clear the peanuts from the highway. Although the front of the cab was demolished, the driver escaped with minor injuries.
