— A vehicle hauling a sailboat was involved in an accident on northbound I-85 about half a mile north of the I-40 split Sunday afternoon.

The vehicle was upright, but the boat overturned and blocked I-85 near mile marker 163 just before 5 p.m. The scene was clear as of 5:50 p.m. Sunday.

No one was injured, according to Orange County Communications.

In an unrelated accident, three people were hurt in a single vehicle accident on I-95 in the northbound lane at mile marker 145.

Troopers initially shut down the road to bring in a helicopter, according to Nash County Communications, but the road has reopened.

There's no word on how serious the injuries were.
