COBB COUNTY, Ga. – Have you used FedEx to ship a package recently? You may want to check on your shipment, according to WSB.

Two FedEx trucks collided Monday on Interstate 75 in Georgia, spilling packages across the highway.

“Packages are spilled everywhere on the side of the road,” wrote the Georgia Department of Transportation on Facebook. “Traffic backed up about 5 miles.”

The packages were moved onto the shoulder. At least one lane was shut down as crews worked to clean up the mess.

In a statement to the Marietta Daily Journal, FedEx officials said they are cooperating with investigators and safety and package care are top priorities.

Concerned customers are encouraged to track their packages at or call 1-800-GO-FEDEX.
