WILSON, N.C. (WNCN) — A tractor-trailer crash on Interstate-95 in Wilson County closed all southbound lanes Friday night near Wilson, officials say.

The incident was reported just after 9:30 p.m. along I-95 near mile marker 119, which is U.S. 264, according to the North Carolina Department of Transportation.

The North Carolina State Highway Patrol said a tractor-trailer was the only vehicle involved in the wreck. The crash happened when the driver of the tractor-trailer lost control and the big rig flipped on its side, blocking the southbound lanes.

No injuries were reported.

A detour has been set up for motorists. Drivers must take Exit 119, which is Interstate-795, then continue straight to re-access I-95.

The scene should clear by 2 a.m. Saturday, the NC DOT said.
