GREENSBORO, N.C. — An overturned tractor-trailer temporarily snarled traffic Wednesday morning on Interstate 85 in Greensboro.

The tractor-trailer overturned around 2:45 a.m. on I-85 North near South Elm-Eugene Street (mile marker 124). The driver, who was not hurt, says he was cut off by another vehicle.

The inside travel lanes on both sides of the interstate were closed until about 8:45 a.m., when officials shut down the entire northbound side so they could upright and move the tractor-trailer.

All lanes of the interstate reopened around 10:30 a.m.
