The incident was reported around 8:30 p.m. on Jones Franklin Road just north of Interstate 440. The road is blocked between Waters Edge Drive and Barringer Drive, according to Raleigh police.

The incident happened when a large box truck tried to turn around, but instead became stuck in mud and blocked the road, police said.

The scene was expected to clear by 10:25 p.m. after a tow truck arrived at the scene. However, by 10:40 p.m., the road was still closed, police said.
