RALEIGH, N.C. (WNCN) — Several lanes of Interstate 540 east and an exit ramp were blocked Wednesday morning after a tractor-trailer went off the road and crashed, according to Raleigh police.
Police said that two lanes on I-540 east near the Glenwood Avenue exit had to be shut down so the 18-wheeler could be removed from the scene.
According to the North Carolina Department of Transportation, the crash occurred around 3:45 a.m. and the ramp to Glenwood Avenue was expected to be closed until 7 a.m. The road and ramp reopened at 7:26 a.m., according to the NCDOT.
The driver of the tractor-trailer was not seriously injured in the crash, police said.
It’s unclear at this time if any charges will be filed against the truck driver.
