Wreck ties up traffic west of Wilmington

Posted October 21, 2008

— A wreck at the intersection of U.S. Highway 421 and U.S. Highway 74/76 had traffic blocked headed into Wilmington Tuesday afternoon.

A tractor-trailer spilled its load onto the roadway as it exited into the westbound lane of U.S. Highway 74/76 from U.S. 421 South.

Brunswick County officials closed the U.S. 421 exit ramp and the right lane of U.S. 74/76 headed west from Wilmington.

Travelers were urged to avoid the area if possible, and to expect delays.

    I love the heading "....west of Wilmington". Good thing it was not EAST of Wilmington. Hope that all is well.
