All lanes re-opened after tractor-trailer overturned on 1-40 near HWY 52

WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. -- All lanes have been re-opened after a tractor-trailer carrying chicken feed overturned on Interstate 40 near Highway 52 in Winston-Salem on Tuesday.

According to the Department of Transportation, at about 2 p.m., all four lanes of Interstate 40 Westbound at exit 193 and US 52 were blocked after a tractor-trailer tipped over.

Witnesses say the truck was headed north on Highway 52 when the truck's driver took the ramp to I-40 too fast and lost control.

Officials said no other vehicles were struck during the accident and the driver sustained minor injuries.

All four lanes were re-opened shortly after 5 p.m., after a crane and tow truck removed the truck and feed from the roadway.
