Caught on camera — a car does a U-turn on Atlanta’s Downtown Connector, cutting off a semi and causing a Hazmat crash that shut down traffic in both directions for hours.

The semi truck driver, Matthew Bowden, was ticketed by police because Georgia state law forbids trucks on the Downtown Connecter unless they’re dropping off or picking up a load inside I-285, according to the Atlanta Journal Constitution.

Atlanta police also charged the car driver with improperly stopping in the roadway, having an expired license, having a suspended license, and improperly changing lanes.
