THIS IS A RUSH TRANSCRIPT. THIS COPY MAY NOT BE IN ITS FINAL FORM AND MAY BE UPDATED.
DARYN KAGAN, CNN ANCHOR: Meanwhile, while we were bringing those comments, we came across a developing story here in Atlanta. Showing you live pictures right now. This is a tractor trailer truck hanging over the side of an overpass. This, if you are familiar with the Atlanta area, is 285, the freeway that is known as the perimeter.
What we know from our affiliate WSB, who is also bringing us these pictures. They are reporting that this truck was headed eastbound on 285 in the northwestern part of Atlanta. As we understand it, the driver of this tractor-trailer truck is still inside of that cab as it hangs over the side. The problem in trying to rescue him, WSB also reporting, the driver is unresponsive. He is not responding to emergency workers, and that is why they are bringing up that cherry picker, trying to talk to the man, talk to the driver, and hopefully get him outside of that cab as it dangles over the side of that freeway overpass.
Once again, these pictures coming to us from Atlanta. Not too far from us here at CNN; 285, Highway 285, the perimeter, the round freeway that circles Atlanta. We will keep our eyes on this, this rescue operation, and bring you the latest, as we continue.
